Seeds are a fantastic reservoir of proteins, healthy fats, fibre, and important minerals such as zinc and magnesium. Yet, they also have a naturally occurring chemical known as phytic acid and some enzyme inhibitors which can interfere with body's absorption of certain nutrients. These enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid are absent in our sprouted pumpkin seeds since they were removed through our soaking process. After the sprouting, we dehydrate the seeds for 24 hours at low temperature. This makes them easier to digest and assimilate and also enhances the full flavor of the seeds.

Are Raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds low-FODMAP?
Yes, raw sprouted pumpkin seeds are low-FODMAP and can be consumed by people following a low-FODMAP diet. In fact, pumpkin seeds are listed as a low-FODMAP food by Monash University, the creators of the low-FODMAP diet.
Pumpkin seeds do not contain high levels of FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols), which are types of carbohydrates that can be difficult to digest for some people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other digestive disorders.
However, it's important to note that portion size is still important when it comes to FODMAPs. While pumpkin seeds are low-FODMAP in small to moderate amounts, consuming large amounts at once may still trigger symptoms in some people with sensitive digestive systems.
As with any dietary change, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian before making any significant changes to your diet, especially if you have a medical condition.
