Organic styrian pumpkin seeds are different to the usual pumpkin seed in that it has no outer hard shell (often removed to leave us with the pepita). The entire seed of this variety of pumpkin is edible and has been a popular snack for many years in Europe.
Organic Styrian pumpkin seeds provide an array of health benefits and contain goodness that our bodies need on a daily basis. These unique seeds are bigger and darker green than most. They are an heirloom variety organically grown in the Styrian region of Austria. They create a rich creamy flavour in any dish, and are jam-packed with amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin K, protein, niacin, calcium, iron and thiamine. The magnesium content in pumpkin seeds is known to assist in lowering blood pressure, which in turn may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Magnesium can also assist in preventing the airway spasm in asthma sufferers, as well as preventing the trigeminal blood vessel spasm that triggers migraines.
They are a perfect crunchy snack and can be eaten raw, cooked or roasted. Add pumpkin seeds into your baking, sprinkle on your favourite soup, salad, muesli or breakfast cereal for a delicious, nutritious snack.
