Pumpkin seeds have a long and fascinating history. Archaeological excavations have revealed that they were part of the diet of many ancient cultures, including the Mayans and Aztecs. These seeds are known for their distinctive nutty flavor.
Pumpkins are popular and widespread almost all over the world, and they are used in many cuisines, such as in the form of pumpkin seed oil. These seeds also appear in the traditional medicine of some cultures and are used to treat various health issues.
Interestingly, pumpkin seeds have even ventured into space as part of experiments on the International Space Station (ISS). They were studied for plant growth in a microgravity environment.
A completely unique pumpkin butter with several key features:
- Handcrafted Production - The butter is meticulously crafted in small batches, from harvesting to grinding, with love and care.
- Nut Activation - Pumpkin seeds are soaked in water for 8 hours, initiating the sprouting process, which neutralizes inhibitors and antinutritional phytates, making the seeds more digestible and increasing the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals.
- RAW Quality - The seeds are processed at low temperatures (up to 42°C), ensuring that all the essential nutrients and delicate sesame flavors are preserved. This means you can enjoy the full range of sesame's flavors and beneficial compounds.
- Vegan and 100% Natural - The butter is vegan and contains no additional ingredients such as palm oil, preservatives, or sugar.
- Local Production - Local nut production and processing minimize long-distance transportation, reducing the environmental impact associated with shipping and maintaining product freshness. It also supports the local economy, creates job opportunities, gives producers control over production, and increases transparency throughout the process.
- Regenerative Agroforestry - The Pemla company, which produces nut butters and collaborates with crop growers, adheres to a regenerative agroforestry approach. This approach involves a modern perspective on agriculture and forestry, with the aim of restoring and improving soil and ecosystems. It emphasizes sustainable soil care, including erosion reduction, soil preservation, and crop diversification. This involves practices such as crop rotation, composting, and limiting the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It also places importance on sustainable water management and biodiversity conservation in forestry, with the goal of supporting local communities and social justice.
