- Product Overview
Pepitas are the inner kernels of pumpkin seeds. They have a buttery flavour and a crunchy texture, making them the perfect seed to snack on.
Pepitas contain a wide range of nutrients, including B-group vitamins, minerals, fibre, essential fatty acids and phytosterols.
Pepitas are regarded as a particularly healthy food for men, as a number of the nutrients they contain are involved in male reproductive function, including zinc (which is essential for sperm production and men’s hormonal balance) and beta-sitosterol (which has a protective effect on the prostate gland, helping to prevent the conversion of testosterone into a form that promotes prostate enlargement).
Consume pepitas as a snack, sprinkle them over breakfast cereal or salad, or use them in baking.
Add flavour and crunch to pepitas by lightly toasting them in the oven, sprinkled with the seasoning of your choice. (Spice things up by trying them with a light dusting of chilli or curry powder).
