Austrian Pumpkin Seeds, Organic, Live Live & Organic, 4oz
We are proud to bring you Premium, Raw Pumpkin Seeds by Austria's Finest.
These Austrian pumpkin seeds are from the unique Gleisdorfer pumpkin which grows in Austria's Steiermark region. Although these seeds are special in many ways, the most obvious way is in their appearance-they grow without a shell, resulting in much larger seeds!
These Pumpkin Seeds are a nutritious snack that also tastes great!
Another feature of the seeds is that of all the pumpkin varieties in the world, this one contains among the highest concentrations of nutrients and essential fatty acids. Try using these big, flavorful seeds as salad toppers, in trail mix or make a delicious, non-traditional pesto!
Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are not only delicious but also packed with nutritional benefits.
Here are some of the potential benefits of consuming pumpkin seeds:
Nutrient-rich: Pumpkin seeds are a good source of essential nutrients, including magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, copper, zinc, and iron. They also contain vitamins like vitamin K and vitamin E.
Heart health: The high magnesium content in pumpkin seeds may contribute to heart health by helping to regulate blood pressure levels. The seeds also contain antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health.
