Publix Sunflower Seed Loaf Bread

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out anything I can about a bread Publix stopped making I think in 2019.  It is a sandwich loaf made with sunflower seeds.  My mother-in-law said she loved it, but they don't make it anymore.  I've seen many recipes online for other breads, but I'm looking for any insight on this one in particular.  I really only need the ingredients, but if anyone has figured out the full formula, I would so appreciate you sharing.

Thanks so much,

You would have to figure it out. I doubt this is what you want, but I tried!

Honestly, it looks like a fairly routine commercial sandwich loaf with some sunflower kernels (not whole seeds - learned that lesson!).

My advice would be to find a sandwich loaf recipe and add in ~10-15% sunflower kernels.

I've never had their Sunflower Bread and I'm not finding any knock-off attempts thru Google. After looking at the ingredient list, perhaps try an enriched (some sugar and oil) white bread with about 10-20% whole wheat flour and add the sunflower seeds. It would take a little playing with but if you have had before, you have a good chance of what direction to tweak it in.

Have some delicious fun!
