JOURNEY OF A PUMPKIN SEED
Styrian Pumpkin seed oil is the oil extracted from roasted seeds of a pumpkin from Styria, a region in Austria. Styrian climate is known to provide ideal growing conditions for these pumpkins.
Once the seeds are removed from the pumpkins flesh, the seeds are roughly ground in the mill, kneaded with water and salt and carefully roasted.
This roasting process is very crucial for the taste of the pumpkin seed oil as it gives the aromatic and nutty taste.
Using high quality pumpkin seeds in the traditional pressing procedure without using any chemical additives nor refining, assures great quality in smell and flavor.
The mild nutty flavour, rich green color and viscous consistency of this ‘green gold’ as an Austrian would say, this pumpkin seed oil will give you a perfect finish for each meal.

WHY STYRIAN PUMPKIN SEED OIL?
No product is as inseparably connected to Styria, Austria through its development and production as Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil.
Styria is not only known to have ideal growing conditions for the pumpkin seeds but is also the origin of the special variety of pumpkins (Cucurbita pepo var. styriaca) needed to produce Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil.
These regional ties should be preserved in order to protect this typical Austrian speciality. Therefore, the EU-Commision declared "Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil" as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) with article 5 VO(EWG) Nr. 2081/92 in 1996:
PGI certifies the origin of our pumpkin seeds and is a guarantee for 100% pure pumpkin seed oil from the first pressing.
