High Grade Food Quality
The quality of pumpkin seed oil depends mainly on the quality of the pumpkin seeds used. The finer the quality of pumpkin seeds, the more exquisite the pumpkin seed oil produced.
The pumpkin seed oil has a characteristic dark green colour and a particular and very pleasant flavour similar to roasted walnuts. For centuries, pumpkin seed oil has been ascribed a variety of health effects and is thus a necessary ingredient of a healthy diet.
The pumpkin seed oil is a culinary specialty from Europe. The Steirisches Kürbiskernöl and the Štajersko prekmursko bučno olje what is mean Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil are European Union Protected Designation of Origin products.
The oil is an important export commodity of Austria and Slovenia. It is made by pressing roasted, hull-less pumpkin seeds, from a local variety of pumpkin the Styrian pumpkin. It has been produced and used in Styria’s southern parts at least since the 18th century.

Pumpkin seed oil is a treasure of vitamins. It contains vitamins A and E. Vitamin E is especially important due to its antioxidant properties. Pumpkin seed oil is one of the vegetable oils with the highest vitamin E content.
Pumpkin seed oil from The Pumpkin house contains 50 mg of vitamin E per 100 grams of oil. Vitamin A is also indispensable to our health because it works similarly to vitamin E, as a free-radical scavenger, strengthens the immune system and maintains good eyesight.
In addition to vitamins, pumpkin seed oil also contains a number of other protective substances. Phytosterols are crucial for the absorption of cholesterol in the digestive tract. Selenium, phosphorous, calcium, potassium and magnesium are all minerals which ensure proper functioning of the body. Selenium is an antioxidant that prevents inflammations and cancerous diseases. It is important for the strengthening of the cardiovascular and immune systems. Citrulline and cucurbitine are also very important in preventing the enlargement of the prostate, while cucurbitine is also very effective against worms.
Fats give energy to our bodies, since they have high calorific value (9kcal/gram), but the awareness of an average consumer is still far from perfect.
Fats in pumpkin seed oil affect the levels of positive cholesterol in the blood system. They may be stored and used when our body requires energy. They work together in forming nerve tissue, in producing hormones, they are vital for the production of bile salts, they transfer vitamins (A, E, D, K), they are a source of essential fatty acids: the linoleic an linolenic acids; and some fatty acids play an important role in preventing cardiovascular diseases.
Even if we consume large amounts of fat, the body may still lack the so-called essential fatty acids. The body is not able to synthesize them on its own; therefore they should be introduced with food. We are speaking of linoleic acid, which is the basis for the formation of omega-6 fatty acids (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame oil, etc.), and linolenic acid, which is the basis for the formation of omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseed, fish oil).
