Hulled pumpkin seeds are pumpkin seeds that have had their outer shell, or hull, removed. They are also known as "pepita" which is the Spanish name for pumpkin seeds. They have a milder flavor and softer texture than regular pumpkin seeds and can be used in a variety of ways, such as in granolas, trail mixes, and as a topping for salads and yogurt. They can also be eaten as a snack on their own, or used to make pumpkin seed butter, which is similar to peanut butter but made from pumpkin seeds.
Hulled pumpkin seeds are a good source of nutrition, containing high levels of protein, healthy fats, and various vitamins and minerals. They are particularly rich in zinc and magnesium, and are a good source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. They also contain fiber, which can help with digestion and weight management.
