Pumpkin seed is an oval green seed packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Protein is an essential component of our diet due to its contribution to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass as well as to the maintenance of normal bones. Containing approximately 60% of protein, our organic pumpkin seed protein powder is a great addition to any meal needing a protein boost.
Originating from the Andes and Mesoamerica, pumpkins have been cultivated for nearly 10,000 years. Known as ?pepita de calabaza? in Mexican Spanish or ?little seed of squash?, pumpkin seeds are found within the fibrous orange flesh of the pumpkin within white kernels. These nutrient-rich seeds have been used in traditional medicine by the ancient Chinese and Native Americans for its anti-parasitic qualities and were even listed as an antiparasitic in the US pharmacopeia from 1863-1936.
Our organic pumpkin seed protein powder is made from high quality pumpkins grown on farms in Austria, free from pesticides and GMOs. To produce pumpkin seed protein powder, the pumpkin seeds are lightly roasted before being gently pressed and milled into a fine powder.
Offering a delicious nutty flavour, our organic pumpkin seed protein powder works well in a variety of both sweet and savoury dishes. Mix into soups, protein dips, raw energy & protein balls or blend into your post-workout superfood smoothie.
