PUMPKIN PROTEIN: THE NEW SUPERSTAR AMONGST PLANT-BASED PROTEINS
Our pumpkin protein is made from organic pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are very nutritious. They contain lots of protein, unsaturated fats, vitamin E, phosphorus, selenium, and zinc.
In 100 grams of pumpkin seeds, there is a whopping 237% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of vitamin E. Vitamin E is one of the most important antioxidants – the substances that help protect the body from oxidation. The main role of antioxidants is to protect the body’s cells against free radicals. These are aggressive substances, which are released into the body upon oxidation. One example of such a situation is the release of energy from nutrients during exercise. In addition, free radicals are also present in polluted air and cigarette smoke. Antioxidants, found in fruits, nuts, and seeds, among others, ensure that free radicals are neutralized.
The FITSHE pumpkin protein is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It has a nutty flavour, it is 100% plant-based and very versatile. You can, for instance, bake bread with it, add it to your overnight oats or incorporate it into your homemade energy bars.
