A jar full of life, in short, is the best way to present our innovative and playful Pumpkina. Pumpkina is the first flavoured, fermented buckwheat product, and it’s made with only the best quality ingredients of Croatian origin. The humble star ingredient is a Croatian variety of buckwheat which has been transformed into a refreshing drink using special and very hard-working fermentative cultures. The buckwheat base is accompanied by a vibrant, sweet and nutritious pumpkin creme with apricots and honey. Our toasty, nutty granola adds a perfect crunch, as well as healthy fibre and fats, to Pumpkina. The process of making Pumpkina is straightforward, but not a simple one... We start it by making a thickened buckwheat drink, in which we add the special fermentative and protective cultures, leaving them to work. But while they work, so do we. We bake, and combine, and blend, and finally get a sweet pumpkin cream to be mixed into the fermented buckwheat. Once assured every batch is perfect, the lid is closed. An individual packaging of carob flavoured granola is hidden under the colourful packaging, almost like a present, waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
