Using Papaya Seeds

The benefits of papaya seeds, with their high levels of digestive enzymes, antibacterial, anti-parasitic and liver regenerating properties are powerful. You don’t too need many at a time, certainly not a whole fruit’s worth.

After you scrape them out of a fresh fruit, it’s best to keep them in a sealed container in the fridge if you’re using them regularly, or in the freezer if only occasionally. A large papaya fruit could supply enough seeds for several weeks of use.

If you’re just starting out with papaya seeds, or using them less regularly, it would be better to keep them in a sealed container in the freezer.

They can be kept in this way for many months, though they should be defrosted before use, or soaked in hot water for a few minutes to warm and soften them. Alternatively, you could transfer any you intend to use for the next day into a container in the fridge the night before.
