Jazz up your dishes with this luscious, dark green pumpkin seed oil from Styria, Austria!
Seductive and tender with a nutty fragrance which fills the air. Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil PGI is the legendary Austrian Gold, and there is nothing else like it. It truly is unique.
Use our award-winning Pumpkin Seed Oil to dress salads, to dip bread into. Spoon over roast chicken or grilled meats. Drizzle on vanilla ice cream. Try it over fresh strawberries. Just don't cook with this delicate oil.
How does Styrian pumpkin oil get its dark green color? Its red shimmer? Hulless seeds from the Styrian oil pumpkin (Cucubita pepo var. styriaca) are soaked, skin and all, in salt water, then slow-roasted. The green color comes from the skins of the seeds, and the red shimmer comes from the carotene in the seeds. Altogether, the color and flavor are glorious!
Store your Pumpkin Seed Oil in the cupboard, just keep it between room and fridge temperatures. (Sunlight is not your oil's friend and can make it bitter.)
Let us know how you've enjoyed yours, and tell us about a dish that was made oh-so-much better because you jazzed it up with Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil!
The Styrian oil pumpkin (lat. Cucurbita pepo var. styriaca) has skinless seeds and it is - like all pumpkins - a berry fruit. The soft seeds are particularly suitable for roasting and pressing. The valuable result is Pumpkin Seed Oil. Styria is a federal state in the south of Austria with a mild climate and ideal soil conditions for growing pumpkins.
The oil pumpkins are harvested in autumn with special machines and partly still by hand.
Our pumpkin seeds are washed, dried and kept refrigerated after harvesting, so that fresh pressing is possible all year round. For the production of pumpkin seed oil the pumpkin seeds are ground, roasted and finally pressed under high pressure.
And you can clearly taste the difference between fresh and stored pumpkin seed oil.
Our pumpkin seed oil has a dark green to dark brown colour with a reddish shimmer. The roasting of the ground pumpkin seeds brings out classic roasting aromas. The pumpkin seed oil produced by cold pressing tastes soft and nutty and is viscous.
Pumpkin seed oil contains numerous valuable minerals and trace elements as well as vitamins A, B, C and E. Selenium and zinc as well as omega-6 fatty acids are only some of the valuable ingredients. Read here how pumpkin seed oil can contribute to health.
Original and fake
Like many other valuable treasures, Styrian pumpkin seed oil has often been the victim of counterfeiting. How to recognize the original? Look for the designation PGI (protected geographical indication) and the banderole with the serial number.
Pumpkin seed oil should always be stored in a cool and dark place - but not in the refrigerator, otherwise it will start to winterize and become so viscous that it won't run out of the bottle.
Due to the incoming oxygen, oxidation inside the bottle starts after opening and therefore tastes best at the beginning. Many prefer smaller bottles and cans of pumpkin seed oil because of the fresh taste. Once opened, pumpkin seed oil should be used within 8 months at the latest, otherwise it loses its taste. For this reason we also offer smaller tins and bottles. In our online shop you can buy buy pumpkin oil.
Pumpkin seed oil can be used in the hot and cold kitchen. However, it should not be heated, otherwise the valuable ingredients are lost.
It is better to drizzle the oil over the food just before serving - whether it is meat, pasta or vegetables. The combination with raw vegetables and salads is also very popular because of the fine, nutty taste of the oil.
A jury of 100 experts approved high-end quality again for this year's pressing.
The Premium Pumpkin Seed Oil from Pumpkin Farm Koller got the top certificate of the year again: The Gold Medal 2021 for Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil PGI. You will find the gold medal on each premium pumpkin seed oil you order with us.

More about the Production of Pumpkin Seed Oil from Austria
In fall, after the pumpkin harvest is over, the seeds are getting washed and dried. Now it's important to protect the valuable pumpkin seeds, since they form the raw material for the "Green Gold of Styria" until to the next harvest. That's the reason why we decided to air-condition our pumpkin seed store 24 hours a day.
Each week, the needed quantity of dried pumpkin seeds are brought to the oil mill. There they are crushed with millstones. Clear water is being added and then the crushed pumpkin seeds are mixed with a little salt to form a dough. This pumpkin seed dough is placed into a large roasting pan and roasted there while constant stirring so that the typical nutty aroma can unfold.
As soon as our experienced roasting master has determined the right flavour, the time has come to start the pressing procedure. The warm roasted dough mass is pressed gently and slowly in a punch press without additional heat. By this, all valuable ingredients of the pumpkin dough remain intact during the pressing process and are converted into the oil. The joy is always great when the first drops of the viscous, dark green Pumpkin Seed Oil flow out of the press!
Now the freshly squeezed Pumpkin Seeds Oil need to have a rest. Since our Pumpkin Seed Oil from Styria is not being filtered, it remains in the tank for a few days, so that most suspended particles can settle on the tanks ground.
Finally we fill the cans and ship it to you. Since we press each week, you always get fresh Pumpkin Seed Oil!
Cooking with Pumpkin Seed Oil: Just dazzling!
Pumpkin Seed Oil is mandatory on the menu of most gourmets. The oil can be used in different manners, because its unique, soft-nutty aroma gives all kind of dishes a very special note. Simply savoury!
