Organic pepitas provide an array of health benefits and contain goodness that our bodies need on a daily basis. Small and green in colour, pepitas come from the inside of the pumpkin seed and have a mild, nutty flavour. They are jam-packed with amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin K, protein, niacin, calcium, iron, and thiamine. The magnesium content in pepitas is known to assist in lowering blood pressure, which in turn may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Magnesium can also assist in preventing the airway spasm in asthma sufferers, as well as preventing the trigeminal blood vessel spasm that triggers migraines.
Pepitas are typically rather flat and asymmetrically oval, and light green in colour and may have a white outer hull. They are a perfect crunchy snack and can be eaten raw, cooked or roasted. Add pepitas into your baking, sprinkle on your favourite soup, salad, muesli or breakfast cereal for a delicious, nutritious snack.
Organic farming uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and works with nature to build the fertility and health of our soil while caring for our environment. Organic farming has a low carbon footprint. Pure and simple, just the way nature intended.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
