Great things do come in small packages. This is especially true when it comes to Styrian Pumpkin Seeds from The Pumpkin house.
Styrian pumpkins and their seeds are specifically cultivated for their superior nutritional properties. They are grown predominately in the region of Styria (area between Slovenia and Austria, Europe), where the necessary conditions for optimal growth and best quality are ideal. Research performed on Styrian pumpkin seeds attributed their superior nutritional value to the combination of ideal growing conditions of the pumpkin and the traditional production methods used to cultivate their pumpkin seeds. This results in a hull-less pumpkin seed (also known as ”naked seeds”) that is richer in both fat-soluble antioxidants and water-soluble antioxidants, when compared to the seeds of other varieties of pumpkins. This means you can enjoy eating the entire pumpkin seeds and gain the heath benefits at the same time!
