“Pumpkin contains protein?”

“You can use the protein of pumpkin seeds in a powder?”

“What's so special about pumpkin protein?”


It’s pumpkin time and we are eager to share this little valuable piece of knowledge with you. Time to talk to Lifefood Quality Control Department staff about the advantages and benefits of our raw pumpkin protein! Curious? Let’s find out…

 

Lifefood Pumpkin Protein

Pumpkin protein is a non-dairy, vegan friendly, non-legume, nut-free, easy to digest source of protein.

Lifefood pumpkin protein has a nutty taste. Its green color reminds us of tasty pumpkin seeds and it has a fine powder texture because of the special grinding process. You can find it in our new raw and vegan protein powders Green Vanilla, Fruit Antiox and Cacao Spirulina.

 

How to make pumpkin protein?

Pumpkin protein powder is obtained during the cold-processed extraction of the pumpkin seed oil. Of course we only work with companies who follow our rawfood path and do not exceed the temperature of 42 °C during the dehydration process.

The left-over of this extraction process is called a "press cake". This cake is then taken to a mill where it is ground into flour. Lifefood raw protein is ground twice. Afterwards it is sieved to make sure only the finest powder is packed for you! Made with love.

 

Why pumpkin protein?

"We use pumpkin protein because we want to improve the amino acid profile of our powders. When mixed with hemp, sunflower and chia protein, the pumpkin protein brings a greater amino-acid diversity in the product, which is the reason why you should use our new vegan raw protein powders!"  explains Lifefood Quality Department staff situated in Prague.
