Pumpkin seeds, a nutritious and versatile snack, are derived from the pumpkin, scientifically known as Cucurbita pepo. Belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family, pumpkins originated in North and Central America, where they were domesticated over 7,500 years ago by indigenous peoples. Pumpkin seeds made their way to India through trade and agricultural exchanges, and they are now widely cultivated in regions like Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Our pumpkin seeds are sourced directly from these states, where they are grown in fertile lands and cultivated using traditional farming methods.

An interesting fact about pumpkin seeds is that they have been used for their medicinal properties for centuries, with ancient cultures recognizing their health benefits. Health-wise, pumpkin seeds are rich in protein, healthy fats, fibre, vitamins, and minerals like magnesium, zinc, and iron, supporting overall health and well-being. They are known to promote heart health, improve prostate health, and enhance sleep quality due to their high tryptophan content. Culinary-wise, pumpkin seeds can be enjoyed as a snack, sprinkled on salads, added to granola, or incorporated into baked goods, offering a crunchy texture and a nutty flavour that complements both sweet and savoury dishes.
