Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — Most Americans think of pumpkins as the quintessential American gourd; pumpkins originated in North America and remain one of the highlights of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. They have been a staple of Native Americans for millennia. But did you know most pumpkin seed oil is made from pumpkins seeds imported from China?
Living Tree Community Foods is proud to announce Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil. In supporting the Oregon family farmers who grow the pumpkin seeds, we are on the forefront of the revival of American agriculture.
Pumpkin seed oil is a nutritional powerhouse with a delightful, buttery flavor. It contains high levels of Vitamin E, zinc, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids. Drizzle it on top of pasta or whisk it together with some coconut vinegar and salt for a delicious salad dressing.
