Nutritional Value of Gluten-Free Raw Pumpkin Seed Kernels Shelled Pepitas
One of the best, most alkaline sources of nutrition you can eat. Pumpkin seeds are incredibly high in iron and magnesium, and contain a larger amount of protein than chia or flax per ounce, boasting a total of 5 grams per ounce. They’re also rich in B vitamins and are the only seed to actually have an alkalizing effect on the body, though many others are considered alkaline in nature. This means pumpkin seeds help counteract acidity and at the same time, provide the support your body needs to feel its best. They even contain high amounts of anxiety-relieving trytophan, an essential amino acid, which helps improve serotonin levels.
Pumpkin Seeds are loaded with the amino acid tryptophan, which aids in the production of serotonin in the brain. A balance of the neurotransmitter serotonin is responsible for regulating mood, sleep, and appetite.
Pumpkin Seeds have a high content of phytosterols, plant-based compounds that can reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Pumpkin seeds and other foods are naturally rich in phytosterols.
Pumpkin Seeds contains zinc and other antioxidants to reduce the risk of prostate disease.
STORAGE OF GERBS
Great product! Always fresh and taste amazing. So thankful to have this option for our child with tree nut allergies. We put these seeds in oatmeal, yogurt, stir fry, basically anything to give an extra punch of nutrients and crunch!
Amazing! It’s so hard to find pumpkin seeds that are not cross-contaminated with nuts!

Fresh allergy friendly pipits These pepitas are fresh and delicious. I have been looking for a long time to find tree nut/peanut free processing facilities so I can feel good about adding these important nutrient dense seeds to my son's diet. Just what I was looking for!
Thank you! These Pepitas are amazing! There are so few allergen free seeds out there, I am so happy to have found Gerbs! So far I have used the pepitas straight out of the bag as a snack, in yogurt, and as part of a homemade trail mix. With thanks and appreciation for your fantastic safe and healthy company!

Thank You As someone with a life-threatening allergy to all tree nuts and sesame seeds, it is near impossible to find pumpkin seeds that are safe for me to eat. These are my favorite seeds to put in my salads, yogurt, and just to eat as snacks, so I am so grateful to have a safe, affordable, and delicious options again! THANK YOU!
Fantastic! The seeds came to us super fast, and we got excellent customer support and great advice on obtaining reasonable shipping (since we are not in the US). Thank you so much for the high quality product, fast shipping time, and great customer service.

Raw Pumpkin and Sunflower seeds!! They shipped way faster than I anticipated. They have been the perfect addition to our pantry. My son is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, dairy and sesame. Other brands of seeds had either cross contamination with nuts or sesame. I am so happy to have found these safe seeds that we can add to granola, roast with different seasonings for a snack, add to oatmeal or salads and help my son get the fats and protein that his growin brain and body need. We will be purchasing from here again.

Hooray! The pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are delicious! Since my son has peanut, tree nut allergies, I have wanted to make recipes and substitute pumpkin and/or sunflower seeds for nuts but was never able to find any that weren’t “processed on the same equipment as peanuts/tree nuts”. Thanks Gerbs for finally making that available for us! The dried cranberries were yummy too!
Go To Product! New Customer! Great clean product! Fresh taste! Will definitely reorder!
I'm allergic to peanuts/tree nuts. I love being able to find high quality seeds and dried fruit at Gerb's without having to worry about cross contamination.
Excellent Hi quality, fast ship, good prices...nuff said

Love it! I have severe peanut/nut allergies and purchased these seeds to make some homemade granola for my family and myself. The granola turned out great, and I look forward to incorporating more Gerbs products in my recipes!
Great tasting seeds! We use them mostly for baking and trail mixes and they store really well. Will definitely order again.
Fresh & Full Flavored! I'm a baker whose artisan bakery is dedicated to those with multiple food allergies. Really great pumpkin seeds have been difficult to find. These are just plain awesome. Fresh and full flavored, these will be a great addition to the fall menu here and a staple to our household. Thanks Gerbs!

Raw Pumpkin Seed kernels Really excellent taste and quality. I have multiple allergies, but have never had any problem with Gerb's seeds. I use various seeds and nuts with blueberries and bananas for breakfast - delicious. I always soak raw seeds in warm salt water one day and then rinse and dehydrate - there are natural toxins on the seeds to prevent animals from eating them.
Awesome Great product and the freedom to enjoy seeds when you have a severe nut allergy is priceless. Fast delivery. I am a fan.
Happy to eat have seeds again! After many years of missing "seeds" in my diet (due to allergic reactions from nut contamination) I was overjoyed to find this site! I am so happy to be eating seeds again (and not having allergic reactions to them!) - the pumpkin and sunflower seeds are excellent!
