Our ingredient buyer Sabrina is gracious enough to give us the shakedown on different PROBAR® ingredients. Today we’ll look at sesame and pumpkin seeds. Get ready to learn, school is back in session…..PROBAR® style!
They’re in our bars; you know they’re good in hummus, but what are they, and what do they do?
Sesame seeds are one of the oldest cultivated seeds, and historically its oil was used as a medicine. Nowadays, it is as good as a superfood as you can find. The seed’s health benefits range from lowering blood pressure to helping your skin. Add to that fact that ours is organic and raw, and you are guaranteed to get all the benefits of this great ingredient from our bars.
Pumpkins aren’t just for magic carriage rides or Halloween carving parties. Pumpkins and their seeds are some of nature’s most nutritious foods, so naturally we put the seeds in our PROBARS!
Pumpkin seeds are excellent sources of plant protein; in fact, it is hard to find a more concentrated source. They are also a good source of vitamins, including vitamin E, an essential antioxidant. The pumpkin seeds in PROBARs are raw so they keep all their goodness intact. Enjoy!
