Production & Sourcing
Harvesting: The process begins with the careful harvesting of mature pumpkin fruits. These pumpkins are specifically grown for their seeds, ensuring they reach full maturity before harvesting.
Extraction: Once the pumpkins are harvested, they are carefully cut open, and the seeds are extracted from the pulp.
Cleaning: The extracted seeds undergo thorough cleaning to remove any residual pulp, dirt, or debris.
Drying: After cleaning, the seeds are spread out in a controlled environment to allow them to dry thoroughly. This helps reduce moisture content, which is important for preserving the seeds and preventing spoilage.
