The melon seed (also known as egousi or egusi in English) is the seed of a type of watermelon called Citrullus lanatus. This type of melon is very popular because of its productivity and food quality. The terminology is confusing, however, as the name egusi is often used to refer to several similar seeds. All of these seeds come from pumpkins (family Cucurbitaceae) and all are high in oil and protein.

  • Nutrient Rich: Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, plant proteins, fiber, magnesium, zinc and antioxidants.
  • Cardiovascular health: The omega-3 fatty acids found in pumpkin seeds may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by promoting heart and blood vessel health.
  • Immune support: Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, a mineral that plays an essential role in the optimal functioning of the immune system. They can therefore help strengthen the body’s immune response.
  • Prostate Health: Certain compounds found in pumpkin seeds have been linked to prostate health benefits, including reducing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
  • Regulation of blood sugar levels: The fiber present in pumpkin seeds can help maintain stable blood sugar levels by slowing the absorption of sugars in the body.

In West Africa, they are a major ingredient in soups and a common part of daily meals. Crunchy, they thicken stews and help the meatballs taste. Some are soaked, fermented, boiled, and wrapped in leaves to form a favorite spice. They’re also toasted and ground into a ball like peanut butter. Some are roasted with peanuts and pepper and crushed into an oily paste that is used when consuming kola nuts, eggplants, and fruits. Egusi seed meal is compacted into patties that serve as meat substitutes. It is even said that the dry seeds placed on a hot pan will burst like popcorn and look like puffed rice.
