Nutra Organics Green Pepitas are a pure product. No chemical refining or bleaching here, and nothing artificial added, just pure wholefood goodness.
Pepitas (a Spanish culinary term) are the edible seed of a pumpkin. Small and green, they have a mild nutty flavour and a great nutritious snack. Pepitas are high in protein and dietary fibre and contain valuable minerals such as manganese, copper, zinc and iron. In fact: ¼ of a cup of pumpkin seeds contains nearly half of the recommended daily intake of magnesium for adults!
How are Pepitas made? Pepitas are the seeds of the pumpkin. They are dried and then shelled as they contain a white outer husk.

I had ordered Pepitas from The Wholefood Pantry and when I ran out bought elsewhere before I placed my next Nutra Organics order. The Pepitas from Nutra Organics are much more vibrant in colour and fresher in taste. Definately excellent quality and fresh, there was no comparison.
