First the pumpkin seeds are chopped into small pieces and mixed with water and salt to form a dough. The mixture is then carefully warmed up and pressed afterwards.
The warm pumpkin seed mass is pressed carefully using a traditional stamp press, without any additional heating. This lengthy process releases the thick dark green oil.Butter
After pressing, the pumpkin seed oil is stored in a tank for 7 days. During this time, all of the suspended solids and fibre residue sink to the bottom as part of a natural process.
Once the oil is rested, it is time for bottling. This process takes place without the addition of any additives or preservatives.
