Organic fermented pumpkin seeds paste
Paste of fermented pumpkin seeds, 300g jar
Organic fermented pumpkin seeds spread
It was in a trade show in London that we met this Spanish SME. We were surprised by the idea and won over by the multiple possibilities of use that this paste format offers. Organic fermented paste can be used everywhere, sweet or savory, to provide the touch of probiotics your body needs on a daily basis.
Their very pronounced, slightly acidic taste instantly enhances your preparations with a truly unique touch:
on a salad, in any type of sauce, vegetable cream, soup or in a smoothie, homemade ice cream, pastry or mixed with your yogurt and muesli in the morning. For the more adventurous, they can also be used spread on bread, crackers or pancakes.
The paste is NOT pasteurized, so it contains all the probiotics from fermentation, while eliminating microorganisms that are potentially dangerous to health. Fermentation (about 48 hours) improves their nutritional content, making the proteins and fibers of the nuts more digestible and providing more micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) than a classic nut puree.

🥄🥄 Recipe idea with the fermented pumpkin seeds paste:
- 1 tablespoon of fermented pumpkin seeds paste,
- 2 drops of EO of cinnamon,
- 1 tablespoon of honey,
- 1 handful of dry apricots,
- 1 cardamom pod.
Once the paste is done, roll to make balls and dip them in shredded coconut.
Fermented foods are highly recommended for the well-being of your digestive system. In addition to improving digestion, providing you with probiotics, fermentation improves the bioavailability of certain nutrients and reduces anti-nutritional compounds like phytic acid.
We advise you to consume a small amount of fermented products each day.
Lactofermentation reveals the flavors of food and promotes the balance of the intestinal microbiota. Seeds and nuts stay alive, are digested more easily, are detoxifying… and delicious!
Dietary probiotics are better and more durably assimilated than supplements. It's more fun to add a spoon of fermented paste once a day in one of your meals, than taking pills, right? ;)
Balance of the intestinal flora: thanks to probiotics. Good bacteria that enrich, regulate, rebalance your intestinal flora. Thanks to them, you will find good intestinal health and we know that the digestive system is our 2nd brain! Taking care of it with probiotics improves many functions of your body, including your mood.
Better digestion: amylase, protease, cellulase, lipase, pectinase do the work for us; the textures are softened and the nutrients more assimilable. It is therefore strongly advised to eat lactofermented products for people with an easily irritable digestive system, especially because of the fibres.
Anti-toxins: fermentation reduces the presence of anti-nutritional compounds. Certain compounds such as phytic acid, cyanide, saponins and phytates (naturally present in food) are neutralized and destroyed.
Strengthens the immune system: nowadays numerous studies have proven that probiotics stimulate the production of antimicrobial compounds, reduce the effect of pathogens and prevent autoimmune reactions. They are also effective in combating antibiotic resistance. In short, a cocktail of benefits to boost our immunity cells!
Even more vitamins and minerals: the nut is rich in magnesium, E and B vitamins, as well as iron and calcium. Certain bacteria resulting from fermentation trigger a phenomenon of biosynthesis of vitamins (B, C, K), minerals and amino acids, which makes the dough richer than raw nuts.
Reduced Inflammation: probiotics influence the growth and regulation of cells that control the body's inflammatory pathways and take action against infections, and food allergic reactions.
Cognitive protection: the intestine and the brain are closely linked, they both regulate the production of hormones in our body and act in synergy. The bacteria will have a modulating effect on the production of nervous messages, in one direction as in the other.
For the bladder and the prostate: pumpkin seeds have diuretic properties. They stimulate the proper functioning of the bladder and prevent inflammation of the area. They promote the reduction of prostate hypertrophy because they contain elements (5-alpha-reductase) which allow better assimilation and better regulation of male hormones (testosterone, DHT, etc.) (source)..
