CB’s organic pumpkin seeds are grown in Oregon and produced in Washington State where they’re brined in a solution of sea salt and water, dried and slowly barrel roasted in small batches. The slow roast is key, as it allows each seed’s natural oils to rise to the surface to create a roasted taste unlike any other brand on the market.

Fun fact about Styrian pumpkin seeds: they're naturally shell-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 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.
