Are sunflower kernels keto-friendly?
Yes, sunflower kernels can be considered keto-friendly. They contain about 6 grams of carbohydrates per 0.25 cup serving, but also deliver 3 grams of dietary fiber which brings down the net carb content to 3 grams. This is within the limit for most keto diets which usually limit carbs to about 20 to 50 grams of net carbs per day.
However, remember to consume in moderation as serving sizes for seeds and nuts are small. Like other seeds and nuts, sunflower kernels are high in calories (around 225 calories per 0.25 cup serving) and can quickly add up if eaten in excess.
