Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder is derived directly from nutrient-rich pumpkin seeds. The end result is a versatile and highly digestible, gluten, soy and dairy free source of vegetable protein that contains all of the amino acids, as well as wide variety of other nutrients found naturally in pumpkin seeds.
The seeds undergo a gentle sprouting and fermenting process in order to naturally increase digestibility and protein content. A toxin-free, low temperature enzyme process is used, leaving a completely raw and organic product. Silky smooth pumpkin seed protein powder is fine enough to dissolve completely in liquid, and has a pleasantly earthy, nutty semi-sweet taste.
At over 60% plant-based protein content and 19 grams of complete protein per serving, Sunburst Superfoods Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder is a suitable source of protein for vegetarians and vegans, but recommended for everyone, especially before or after a workout! Blend into smoothies, yogurt or simply dissolve in water. You could also use in baked goods or raw treat recipes, perfect for the holidays!
