Organic Pumpkin Seeds are popular for their pungent flavour.
Organic Pumpkin Seeds are a great addition to any store cupboard. These nutrient dense seeds are high in zinc which can be harder to obtain from a plant based diet. Organic pumpkin seeds can be sprinkled whole or ground on to sweet and savoury dishes and their fresh, nutty taste makes them a popular choice. If you like a variety of seeds on your dishes you could try our organic omega four seed mix.
The more green and plump pumpkin seeds are, the more tasty and nutritious they become. Organic, freshly packed pumpkin seeds like these really do taste exceptional. Although you can prepare your own pumpkin seeds from fresh pumpkins, it can be a little messy, time consuming and you would need to eat a lot of pumpkin flesh to stay in supply!
