Our sun is allergic to sunflower seeds, but is able to tolerate highly refined sunflower oil (using high heat for extraction). I've been seeing "sunflower lecithin" on some products lately, and have been trying to determine whether or not it is safe. Does anyone know? Today I was reading that it's often from cold-pressed sunflower seeds, but I would like to find a reliable source to determine this for sure. If it's cold-pressed, definitely NOT SAFE!!

Have you called the company? They may be able to give you better details on what type of sunflower lecithin they are using in their products. When in doubt, stay away from it.
