Food Find: SuperSeedz
Pumpkin seeds have always been a staple in my pantry. Even when I was younger, my mom and I would make a fresh batch every year around Halloween. As I’ve grown older and learned the importance of reading allergen warnings on food packaging, I’ve realized how difficult it is to find pumpkin seeds (and sunflower seeds, for that matter) without a peanut or tree nut warning. Then one day, I was introduced to SuperSeedz, a gourmet line of pumpkin seeds. Produced from natural ingredients, SuperSeedz are free from peanuts, tree nuts, milk, wheat (gluten), egg, soy, fish, and shellfish. They provide some wonderful health benefits, too. According to their website, pumpkin seeds offer 42% more protein than almonds and 212% more magnesium than peanuts. Available in a variety of flavors, I’ve tried Organic Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt, Organic Pink Himalayan Salt, and Somewhat Spicy – all delicious. Superseedz can be purchased directly on their site, Amazon, or in your local grocery stores.
