Pumpkin seeds are the white or cream-colored, oval-shaped seeds found inside pumpkins. These are edible seeds typically roasted for consumption. Over the years these seeds have gained a lot of recognition as “superfoods” due to an array of both macro and micronutrients that can be obtained by consumption of these seeds. Today, China produces more pumpkins and pumpkin seeds than any other country. India, Russia, Ukraine, Mexico, and the U.S. are also major producers of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are available all through the year.
While buying whole seeds look for uniform, compact, cream-white or light yellow colored seeds. The seeds must feel heavy in hand and give good metallic sound as it indicates freshness. Avoid thin, small-sized, shriveled seeds as they yield poor-quality kernels. iv) Make sure the pack of seeds is free from molds, open pores and any kind of rancid smell.
