The Indian government has introduced a new nutrition page on its website, which highlights some of the nutritional benefits of pumpkin seeds.
The page has been launched after a survey by the Indian Food and Agriculture Ministry found that 75 percent of Indian households do not get enough pumpkin seeds and that a quarter of them do not have any seeds at all.
The new page is the latest in a series of new nutrition pages in recent months, and the first since a survey conducted by the ministry found that only a third of the country’s households had access to seeds of the pumpkin variety.
The page provides information on the nutritional qualities of pumpkin, as well as a range of pumpkin-related foods, including pumpkin curry and pumpkin tea.
It also has a list of some of India’s favourite pumpkin-flavoured sweets, including cinnamon and pumpkin pies, as part of its recommendations.
The content on the page also includes a list for pumpkin seeds, a list with a list price and a link to a website where you can get seeds for yourself or to make yourself a batch of pumpkin for a family gathering.
The new page has not yet been officially launched.
It is likely to be rolled out over the next few weeks.
The first pumpkin seeds page on the Indian government’s website was launched in September 2017, and was followed by a new page that contained nutritional information on all the varieties of pumpkin in India.
The pumpkin seeds section has since grown into an important resource for anyone looking for more information about the variety, including the nutrition facts on the seeds, and also a list by the National Pumpkin Advisory Committee for the country.
