Like the rest of our nuts, these USDA Organic and USA Grown pumpkin seeds come to us in a raw form, we salt them lightly with sea salt, and roast them in small batches to create a delicious, healthy treat. We know you will love them!
Nutritionally, pumpkin seeds offer a substantial amount of fiber, protein and Omega 3s and antioxidants! Dr. Oz, Oprah’s doctor, named Pumpkin Seeds one of the top 5 Superfoods in November 2009. They have been historically known to address digestive tract problems, and are known to provide protection against prostate cancer. Pumpkin seeds may also be beneficial in the treatment and prevention of diabetes. Recent animal studies have shown pumpkin seeds (seeds, seed extracts, and seed oil) to improve insulin regulation in diabetic individuals. Even the World Health Organization recommends eating pumpkins seeds as an excellent dietary source of zinc.
