About Pumpkin Seeds Grade AA Organic

If you carve open a whole pumpkin, you’ll find them surrounded by orange, stringy flesh. And although pumpkin seeds are perfectly safe to eat many people scoop out the whole seeds and roast them- (with the shell) as a snack, it’s preferred to be shelled in case of digestion issues they might cause.

Pumpkin seeds are a small powerhouse of nutrients and health benefits. They are a great source of protein and unsaturated fats, including omega-6 fatty acids, iron, zinc, calcium, B2, folate and beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A.

Storage and shelf life

Store pumpkin seeds in a cool, dry, airtight container, away from the sunlight and heat. It’s a good idea to store in the refrigerator too, the coolness helps the seeds maintain freshness and allows them to last longer.

Pumpkin seeds, when stored properly, will keep their taste and texture for up to 1 year.

How to use

Raw or roasted pumpkin seeds will be a great addition to your salads, granola, cookies and garnish for soups and pasta/ risotto. When crushed they can be also used to make a crunch flavorful coating to your veggies, meat and fish. It has been more and more used to substitute pine nuts in the famous Italian pesto but also adding a crunch to your guacamole and salsa.

To roast pumpkin seeds, start by tossing them with a small amount of oil, along with your preferred seasoning mix. The oil will help the spices adhere to the seeds. Spread your pepitas in a single layer on a lined baking sheet and roast at 150ºCfor 45 minutes. The low temperature will prevent the seeds from burning.
