Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a peanut allergy?

    Peanut allergy happens when your immune system categorizes proteins from peanuts as harmful. Direct or indirect contact with peanuts can cause your immune system to release symptom-causing chemicals into your blood stream.

  • What foods can trigger a peanut allergy?

    The short answer is any foods with nuts. You may find peanuts or tree nuts in baked goods, cookies, candy, pastries, pie crusts, and more.

  • Can a peanut allergy go away?

    Studies have shown that roughly 20-25% of children that experience a peanut allergy will outgrow it. 80% of children that do outgrow peanut allergy do so by the age of 8.

  • Is a peanut allergy genetic?

    Some studies suggest that the HLA-DR and -DQ gene region poses a significant genetic risk for peanut allergy. Researchers have pinpointed a region in the human genome showing strong evidence that genes can play a role in the development of food allergies.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds by L’Orenta Nuts: Taste Meets Nutrition

At L’Orenta Nuts, we don’t just provide you with nuts and seeds; we offer a heritage of quality, a commitment to health, and an unwavering passion for culinary innovation. One of our most beloved products is the roasted and salted pumpkin seed, a versatile and nutrition-packed delight with much to offer to every palette. Let us take you on a journey into the world of pumpkin seeds, or as some may know them, pepitas.

Pumpkin Seeds: A Healthful Delight

Pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, are more than just a seasonal treat. They are an all-year-round sensation that combines taste and nutrition in each bite. Here’s why:

Nutritional Powerhouse

Pumpkin seeds are enriched with magnesium, a mineral that plays an essential role in various bodily functions, including muscle contractions, bone development, and energy production. Furthermore, their potassium content aids in wound healing, muscle functions, and balanced blood pressure.

Moreover, they’re abundant in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which have been proven to support heart health. Additionally, pepitas contain phytosterols, plant compounds known for their cholesterol-lowering properties.

From Our Family to Yours: A Legacy of Quality

Our journey began in 1934 with our great-great-grandfather, who was dedicated to providing unparalleled-quality freshly roasted nuts. He understood the importance of nutrition and the joy of having healthy snacks available throughout the day. Five generations later, we remain as committed to his vision, ensuring that each product we offer embodies the legacy of L’Orenta Nuts.

The Versatility of Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds can be much more than just a snack. Here’s how you can incorporate them into various dishes:

Culinary Adventures

  • Salads: Sprinkle some roasted pumpkin seeds over your favorite salad for an added crunch and flavor.
  • Main Courses: Whether it’s a bowl of spicy chili or a plate of enchiladas, pumpkin seeds can add a delightful texture and taste.
  • Breakfast: Take yogurt, fruit, pumpkin seeds, and a touch of brown sugar or honey, and your morning meal is ready to enjoy!
  • Desserts: Imagine a slice of pumpkin pie adorned with whipped cream and garnished with roasted pepitas. The combination is simply heavenly!

Energy-Boosting Mixes

Our mixes with seeds are carefully curated to provide you with an energy boost, making them perfect for those who lead an active lifestyle. These mixes often include other nutrient-rich nuts and, sometimes, even a hint of candy for that sweet touch.

Keeping the Freshness Intact

We understand the importance of freshness when it comes to snacks. That’s why every purchase, whether it’s a one-pound bag or five, comes in a resealable bag. So, every time you reach for a handful, you’re met with the same freshness as the very first time.

Elevate Your Snacking Experience with L’Orenta Nuts

Pepitas are a testament to the beauty of nature, packing taste, nutrition, and versatility in tiny seeds. At L’Orenta Nuts, we take pride in offering gourmet pumpkin seeds that are a perfect blend of tradition and quality.

The next time you’re looking for snacks that are both delicious and nourishing, remember that we’re just a click away.
