Darker in colour and larger than their Chinese cousins, our organic heirloom European pumpkin seeds are harvested from ancient varieties of pumpkins in Austria.

Prized for their intense flavour and high nutritional content, these wonderfully crunchy seeds are rich in quality protein: 100g of these seeds gives you 54% of your recommended daily allowance of protein! They’re also loaded with fibre, zinc, phosphorus and manganese, and a great source of iron: it only takes half a cup of pumpkin seeds to meet 60% of your recommended daily intake!

Our organic European pumpkin seeds make a great snack for people who are on-the-go but they are also a great compliment when added to your salads, sauces, baked goods, and smoothies. Not only do they add nutrition and texture to a dish, but they also lend a splash of vibrant colour - what more could you want?

Health Facts

Organic European Pumpkin Seeds Nutrition Facts

History

Originally from North and South America, the pumpkin was domesticated in Mexico about 9000 years ago and was used for its medicinal virtues. The Algonquian’s Menomini used pumpkin seeds as a diuretic, and later North American settlers would grind the seed and mix it with water, milk and honey to use it to fight intestinal parasites. The Cherokees also used pumpkin seeds to help treat bed wetting in children. In Central America, pumpkin seeds were used to treat nephritis and urinary tract infections.

Culinary Uses

In Mexico, pumpkin seeds are usually toasted and flavored with salt, lime, or chili peppers for a light snack.

Pumpkin seeds can easily be added to muffins, cookies, breads, salads, smoothies, and even cereals. To get the most out of pumpkin seeds, eat them raw!

European pumpkin seeds Written By: Colleen
Wow... our 1 kg bag didn't even last a month. We used them in salads, cookies, muffins, smoothies, soaked breakfast cereal, soak and roasted them. Rich in goodness and well worth the money. THanks Prana

prana organic pumpkin seeds are great for your root vegetable salads Written By: Luigi
I love your pumpkins seeds, they are great topping for my root vegetable salads. I can never go without, I purchase the 1kg bag. it will last approximately one month. But that's not all, I use the pumpkins seeds for my smoothies every morning. The omega-3 oil found in pumpkin seeds are essential to brain health. I can never get enough. Also, studies show that pumpkin seeds help inhibit the growth of prostate cancer. Furthermore, "A mixture of flaxseed and pumpkin seed was found to have heart-protective and liver-protective properties in an animal study from 2008 published in the Journal of Food Chemistry & Toxicology." (Food Chem Toxicol. 2008 Dec;46(12):3714-20. Epub 2008 Oct 1.) Thank you Prana for providing us with great quality organic raw food products, I know, I am grateful to purchase and help support local organic economy in Quebec.
Best ever pumpkin seeds! Written By: Dena
The European pumpkin seeds from Prana are the best I've ever tasted. Larger and greener than the pumpkin seeds sold elsewhere. The flavour is outstanding and seeds are nice and fresh. Also appreciate the quick shipping. Great product and great service.
