Pumpkinseed oil

Product of organic farming

The pumpkin is the largest fruit of the plant world. Botanically speaking, the pumpkin is a berry because the seeds are located within the fruit. Those of the Steyr pumpkin are especially large, with a fine flavour.

It takes the seeds of 30 to 50 pumpkins to make one litre of pumpkinseed oil.

The seeds of the Steyr pumpkin are cleansed in clear water in the traditional way, before being gently roasted at 70° C. The seed shells are rich in chlorophyll and carotene, which gives the oil its luminescent, deep reddish-green colour. Pumpkinseed oil has a pronounced flavour of its own, with a deliciously fruity, slightly tart aroma.

This oil adds a certain ’je-ne-sais-quoi’ to even the simplest of dishes.

Gourmet Tip

Use pumpkinseed oil in green salads, ’crudités’ and with cooked vegetables. A few splashes on jacket potatoes or on goat’s cheese give them a subtle flavour. Use it to enhance fondue sauces or rub onto the skin of a chicken before roasting, to make it crisp and bronze-coloured.

Health Tip

Pumpkinseed oil is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is best not to heat it as high temperatures destroy these precious properties and make the oil bitter. Pumpkinseed oil is recommended for prostate and bladder problems.
