Organic Pepitas (No Shell Pumpkin Seeds)
These yummy raw organic pepitas (no shell pumpkin seeds) are certified organic by CCOF. The taste is identical to the regular pepitas (no shell pumpkin seeds). High in protein, phosphorous and iron, organic pumpkin seeds are great in salads or just for snacking. No need to worry about what to do with the shells because there aren't any!
How to Enjoy Organic Pumpkin Seeds
Snack on these raw pepitas plain, or toss them over salads for a nice crunch. Pumpkin seeds are also delicious in soups and stews, and add a great texture to puddings, cookies, and other desserts. Sprinkle them over oatmeal and cereals, or chicken and vegetable dishes for a nutritional boost.
Pepitas are extremely popular in Mexico where they are toasted and spiced with salt, chile or other flavors for a great snack. You cooks and foodies know also that grinding them up provides the key ingredient for pipian, a type of mole.
Health Benefits of Organic Pumpkin Seeds
Organic pepitas are a rich source of protein and dietary fiber which makes for a healthy and satisfying snack. They are also loaded with minerals like iron, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. Pumpkin seeds are naturally plentiful in antioxidant-like compounds that may lower LDL "bad" cholesterol levels.
Alkaline-forming foods like organic pepitas are an excellent addition to Western diets which are often overly acidic. In fact, pepitas are the only seeds that are alkaline-forming. Research suggests that alkaline-forming foods promote cardiovascular health, build strong bones, and improve cognitive function.
Organic pumpkin seeds may also help regulate blood sugar levels. A 2010 study published the the Journal of Diabetes and Its Complications found that a diet supplemented with pumpkin seed and flax mixture improved insulin regulation and supported antioxidant activity in rats.

“Oh my gosh! Just received my first order from nuts.com, it came really quickly. The natural papaya is to die for! I wanted pumpkin seeds and couldn't find them anywhere that weren't roasted & salted. Nuts.com has them and they're wonderful! I use them in my smoothies, and also use the cacao nibs and goji berries. I will definitely order again! I love this site!”
