  • Fobert D. Hagenmaier
Technical Short Communications


Undehulled sunflower seeds were comminuted and extracted with water containing 0.2% Na2SO3 at pH 10, which extracted from the fiber 86% of the oil and 85% of the protein. Isolate was prepared by addition of acid, with best yield achieved from pH 5 precipitation.
