Our Nutritionist says

"Use raw organic honey as it has superior nutritional benefits over regular heat-treated honey which is usually highly processed. Pumpkins are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene, which has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties), and a rich source of vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fibre."
