To eat a sunflower seed, run your tongue over the salty outer shell, crack it between your teeth, and spit out the shell before chewing the seed. To repeat. This article will teach you how to become a master seeder: one who can consume sunflower seeds while doing other tasks.


Method 1 of 2: Improve the technique

  1. Get a bag of sunflower seeds. You can get a bag of seeds that have already been removed from their shells, but it's more fun to eat the seeds which require a little work to be extracted. Choose from a variety of flavors such as chipotle, cucumber or barbecue.
  2. Put a sunflower seed in your mouth. Start with just one so you can keep track of the tech.
  3. Move the seed to the side of your mouth. It's easier to crack the seed in the side of your mouth than in the front.
  4. Put the seed between your teeth. Use your tongue to get it into position. Position it either vertically or horizontally depending on your preference. In either case, the outer edge of the shell should be in contact with your teeth.
    • Use your molars (chewing teeth) to crack the shell. They have a notch in the middle to hold the seed in.
    • It's harder to use your two front teeth. You risk the semen slipping and scratching your gums.
  5. Apply firm and even pressure to the seed until it cracks. The torso should give slightly after a moment of heavy pressure. Don't bite so hard that you crush it.
  6. Free the semen from your teeth. Let it fall on your tongue.
  7. Separate the inner seed from the shell. Use your tongue and teeth to pull them apart. The texture is key to this step. The inner, edible seed is smooth while the shell is rough.
  8. Spit out the clam pieces. After a workout, the shell usually breaks open like a clam, making this step less messy.
  9. Eat the seed.

Method 2 of 2: Eating a large amount of seeds

  1. Put a handful of seeds in your mouth. Some baseball players pour half a bag in their mouths right away and chew it over the course of an hour. The more semen you can store in your cheek, the better.
  2. Move the seeds onto one cheek. They want them all to be in the same place so that you can be in control of them.
  3. Move a seed to the other side of your mouth. Use your tongue to move it so that it is in the other cheek.
  4. Crack the shell. Use your tongue to position it between your molars, then bite down to crack the shell.
  5. Spit out the shell and eat the seed.
  6. Repeat with another seed. Move it from the storage cheek to the other cheek, bite it between your molar teeth, spit out the peel, and eat the seed.
  7. Slowly increase the amount of semen you can hold in your free cheek. This reduces the number of reloads per serving and that is exactly what the pros do.

Community questions and answers

Is it hygienically healthy to put peeled seeds in your mouth? We don't know how they were saved before.

If you take the seeds out of an undamaged bag, they come from a factory, which means they must comply with food hygiene laws. If the seeds are open or from a bowl, your mileage may vary. If one is pedantic, the question of whether food is safe could be asked by food that is not 100% made from production to the table itself.

    • In order not to annoy your co-workers, try to crack the seeds with your mouth closed to minimize the irritating "cracking".
