Pumpkin seeds contain a diverse range of minerals including zinc, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
We source the best, truly raw, certified organic pumpkin seeds, which we long-soak in a saline solution of filtered water and Mountain Spring Salt. This activation process minimises or eliminates enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens (all of which were added by Mother Nature to prevent the precious seeds being eaten and digested). Our gentle drying process (at temperatures below 47ºC) ensures the seeds remain in their nutritious, raw state.
Did you know?… Pumpkin seeds were a celebrated food among many Native American tribes, who treasured them both for their dietary and medicinal properties. In South America, the popularity of pumpkin seeds has been traced at least as far back as the Aztec cultures of 1300-1500 AD.
