Product Description

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!

If you want to try the most coveted pumpkin seeds around then take a look at our AAA Organic Pumpkin Seeds.

Nutritional Information

The Nutritional Benefits of Organic Pumpkin Seeds.

Organic Pumpkin Seeds are a rich source of nutrition.  They are high in vitamin K, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Copper and Manganese. They are a source of Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Folate (B9) and Potassium.

Magnesium: This wonderful nutrient is often referred to as natures tranquilliser.  It is necessary for the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and electrolyte balance.  It is also needed for normal nervous system and muscle function.

Vitamin K: This nutrient is needed for the normal maintenance of bones and blood clotting.

B-Vitamins: This group of vitamins contribute to normal psychological function, normal function of the immune system and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Manganese: This vital nutrient contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, formation of connective tissue and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Iron: It is vital to get enough iron and many whole foods contain high levels of it. Iron contributes to normal cognitive function, immune system function, reduction of tiredness, energy-yielding metabolism, formation of red blood cells, transportation of oxygen and cell division.

    This review is actually for the AAA dark green pumpkin seeds, which don’t seem to have a review section.
    Although the standard pumpkin seeds are great, the AAA dark green seeds really are the most delicious I’ve ever tasted, and packed full of nutrients too. Certainly worth the slightly extra cost for the depth of taste!

Family Tip:

  1. We snack on organic pumpkin seeds straight from the jar or grind them up and sprinkle them on yoghurt.
  2. We also enjoy lightly toasting them with Himalayan pink salt and using them as a garnish or tasty snack.
  3. If you make your own muesli then these are a great addition.
