Dried Pumpkin

More Than an Autumn Favorite • Versatile in Human & Pet Food Applications

Originally grown in North and Central America, pumpkin is one of the oldest domesticated vegetables. Pumpkin is popular during autumn when temperatures begin to cool and Pumpkin Spice arrives in virtually every category. It has a sweet, earthy flavor, orange flesh, and pairs well with orange peel and cranberries.

Pumpkin is exceptionally rich in beta-carotene that converts to vitamin A, and is also a great source of fiber, vitamin C, E, iron, folate, and potassium. Studies show pumpkin may support eye, heart, lung, kidney, cellular, immune, metabolic, bone, and digestive health(1). It’s often used in dog, cat, and rabbit food because it may support gastrointestinal, metabolic, eye, and skin health(2)(3).

Our pumpkin powder makes an excellent addition to both wet and dry applications, including popular pumpkin spice items. Possibilities include baked goods and mixes, pancake and waffle mixes, gluten-free products, soups, food bars, and snacks. Pumpkin is an extremely popular product in dog food and treats, and is also a healthy addition to cat, rabbit, and hamster food.
