Pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, are crunchy and delicious. They are an excellent source of amino acids tryptophan and glutamate. Pumpkin seeds are high in protein and Vitamin E, as well as B-complex group of vitamins and minerals. Snack on them or enjoy them in salads, rice, and vegetable dishes. We put the pumpkin seeds in our Sweet and Salty Mix, and our Trail Mix.
