Our organic roasted pumpkin seed oil from Styrian pumpkin seeds is a popular edible oil of deep green colour with a nutty taste. Compared to our virgin pumpkin seed oil from unroasted seeds, it has a nuttier and more intense taste. The temperature of the extraction process does not exceed 40 °C, which preserves the valuable ingredients and the characteristic taste of pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seed oil is a delicacy in Styria, Austria, and Germany and popular for refining savoury dishes, such as salads and soups, as well as desserts like ice cream and crepes.
Roasted pumpkin seeds from Styria
Gourmets appreciate cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil for its intense nutty and aromatic taste. Pumpkin seed oil from Styrian oil pumpkins (Cucurbita pepo var. styriaca) is a special rarity: This variety is a breed that was created in the 19th century in Styria, Austria, which only became known beyond the area in the 1970s. Today, the deep green oil is becoming more and more popular and said to be especially health beneficial for men.
Next to essential fatty acids, the cold-pressed oil from mildly roasted pumpkin seeds contains valuable vitamin E - 100 g pumpkin seed oil cover 240 % of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin E helps to protect the cells from oxidative stress. A diverse and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are a prerequisite for good health.
Styrian pumpkin seed oil is ideally suited for warm and cold dishes: It refines salads, soups, sauces, cheese, fish and vegetable dishes as well as desserts, pastries and creams. Due to the high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, it is not suitabe for frying.
Furthermore, pumpkin seed oil is a rich skin care oil for dry skin or for stretch marks and lines.
