Salted sunflower seeds are a common snack, but those who prefer a more natural taste may wish to remove the salt. Several soakings and rinsings will remove most of the salt from the seeds, but avoid this method and purchase unsalted sunflower seeds if you are on a no-sodium diet.
Submerge the sunflower seeds in a bowl of water for five minutes.
Pour the water and seeds through a colander to drain.
Rinse the sunflower seeds in the colander and return to the bowl.
Cover the seeds with water again for another soaking.
Drain and rinse the seeds.
Soak and rinse one more time and pat the seeds dry on paper towels before using.
