USA GROWN Classic Pumpkin Seeds

Our Process

Our USDA Organic classic pumpkin seeds come straight from Stahlbush Island Farms in Corvallis, Oregon, are brined in a solution of sea salt and water, dried, slowly barrel roasted, and seasoned in small batches. The slow roast is key to developing our unique complex flavor profiles, and allows the seed’s natural oils to rise to the surface — no added oils are necessary in our process.

We carry four different types of classic pumpkin seeds. First, we have our old faithful Golden Delicious seeds seasoned with nothing but a bit of sea salt; next is our Fiery Harissa seeds coated in a blend of garlic, chili, and cumin; then we have our Savory Umami seeds covered in tamari, shiitake, and dulce (sea lettuce); and last but not least, the kid favorite Cinnamon Toast seeds. 

Fun fact about Stahlbush Island Farms: they are a leader in sustainable and organic farming in the Northwest. By implementing innovative farming techniques and a first of its kind Biogas Plant, Stahlbush Island Farms has created a closed loop cycle that produces electricity from fruit and vegetable byproduct, enough to power its own processing plant as well as provide energy to power over 1,000 homes.

USA Grown Naked Styrian PUMPKIN SEEDS

OUR PROCESS

Our USDA Organic Naked Styrian pumpkin seeds come straight from the farmlands of Oregon, are brined in a solution of sea salt and water, dried, and slowly barrel roasted in small batches. The slow roast is key to developing our unique complex flavor profiles, and allows the seed’s natural oils to rise to the surface — no added oils are necessary in our process.

Fun fact about Styrian pumpkin seeds: they're naturally hull-less, therefore don't require the water-intensive processing involved in shelling traditional pumpkin seeds — what you probably know as the “pepita”. Additionally, everything except the seed of the Styrian pumpkin is returned to the soil as compost during harvest, making them a very environmentally friendly crop.

HEALTH BENEFITS

The health benefits of eating classic and naked pumpkin seeds seems almost too good to be true, but these little seeds pack a powerful punch of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, micronutrients, healthy fats, protein, and fiber that can’t be ignored. Additionally, the World Health Organization recommends eating pumpkins seeds as an excellent source of zinc.

Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that is not just present in pumpkin seeds, but is present in at least five forms, which research suggests could make the pumpkin seed unique in its ability to deliver higher bioavailability of Vitamin E. Pumpkin seeds also contain combinations of other phenolic and phytonutrient antioxidants that are not often found in other foods.

Pumpkin seeds may also be beneficial in the treatment and prevention of diabetes. Animal studies have shown pumpkin seeds (seeds, seed extracts, and seed oil) improve insulin regulation in diabetic individuals.

Other research supports the long-held belief that pumpkin seeds can provide antimicrobial benefits due to their unique proteins. Lignans in pumpkin seeds (including pinoresinol, medioresinol, and lariciresinol) have been shown to have antimicrobial properties that include being anit-fungal and anti-viral.
