Raw Styrian Gold Pumpkin Seeds
Styrian Pumpkin Seeds - The Best In The World
North American Pumpkin seeds vs Styrian Pumpkin Seeds
The main difference, is that the North American pumpkin seeds have a thick, white shell (husk) that once removed you are left with a smaller light green seed (also known as pepitas) VS the Styrian pumpkin seeds that grow without a shell and are larger and dark green.
North American Pumpkins
North American Pumpkin seeds (Cucurbita pepo)
(Remove the shell….you have pepitas…..healthy fats dry up (oxidize) and go rancid…..reduced nutrition)
Oil from these seeds is unstable and must be refrigerated, is light yellow colour, slightly bitter taste.
Styrian Pumpkin Seeds (Cucurbita pepo var.styriaca)
(No shell….still alive…..healthy fats intact….can be sprouted!)
Oil from these seeds is stable and does not need refrigeration, is dark green with red undertones.

Eating These Healthy Seeds: to soak or not to soak!
That’s a good question. Here is our answer. Some “experts” claim that all seeds must be soaked in water before eating to neutralize the phytic acid. Other “experts” say that phytic acid is not a problem. If you have a digestive issue then soak the seeds a few hours or overnight before eating. If you have never had digestive issues then don’t worry about it. If you are not sure, then try a few seeds either way and see how your body reacts. We usually toss a handful in a salad or just eat them right out of the bag. Just be sure to chew them well as that will prepare them for proper digestion and assimilation.
