Often called and confused with the easily obtained ‘pepita’ from China, which is actually just the unprotected kernel of a regular pumpkin seed, the naked variety is whole and should only be called pumpkin seeds. 

As well as having a wonderful ‘healthy green’ nutty flavour, these dark green pumpkin seeds are well known for their high oil content. Also known as a Superfood, pumpkin seeds are packed full of nutrients. One handful will give you:

  • a protein boost – they supply a well balanced form of all the essential amino acids which are very nourishing, energising and easily digestable.
  • iron and phosphorus: promote healthy blood development and efficient  nerve and mental activity.
  • magnesium – necessary for muscle relaxation
  • zinc – known for its many functions in the body including the healing and maintenance of tissues, enhancing the immune system.
  • antioxidant vitamins A & E – protects cells from free radical damage and aids the body to grow, maintain and heal.
  • B group vitamins – needed to process protein, carbohydrates and fats.
  • essential fatty acids contained in the oil which make up to 45 – 50% of the total seed, supply and transport vitamins to the body, reduce cholesterol and support the reproductive and urinary tract.
  • No cholesterol

They can easily be added to: • salads • pizza • stirfries  • bread • cakes • biscuits • your morning cereal • garnishing any dish • fruit salad
