Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil

styrian-pumpkin-seed-oil-2bottles-thmbnl

This absolutely delicious organic pumpkin seed oil is made with organic roasted pumpkin seeds from the Styrian (PGI) region of Austria.

Schalk Muhle’s Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil P.G.I. is a delicious culinary oil with a delightful, nutty flavour. Made from a unique variety of pumpkin cultivated in the specially designated Styrian region of Austria, it is a premium quality, 100% pure certified organic oil. Importantly, this oil is produced in a traditional, sustainable way, without filtering or refining.

Nutritious and Delicious

The wonderful taste of this oil never fails to delight! But our Pumpkin Seed Oil doesn’t just taste wonderful, it also has a positive impact on your health. In contrast to other oils, our oil is full of antioxidants. The fat of the pumpkin seed is one of the most valuable – with approx. 80% unsaturated and a whole 50% polyunsaturated (rich in Omega Fatty Acids). It is also full of nutrients, particularly vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D and E (approx. 29mg in 100g Pumpkin Seed Oil) as well as other micronutrients.

Traditional milling techniques

Thanks to traditional production techniques, including a hand-operated wood burning pan, we can guarantee the perfect oil that offers a unique, dark green colour and a nutty, gently roasted aroma. It is filled into glass bottles or cans and stored away from direct sunlight.

Family owned and operated

Schalk Mühle KG is a small family business located in the middle of the wonderful, south-east Styrian region of Austria. Our mill was first documented in 1542 and was bought by Franz Schalk in 1859 – our family have been in charge of the business since then. We attach great importance to handcrafting our oil. For generations we have worked to strengthen regional, sustainable production and protect traditional manufacturing processes. We use local raw materials, minimal transport, and electricity from our own hydro-electric power plant, as well as firewood from our own forest.

Certification and P.G.I.

Our Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil P.G.I is certified organic by the Austrian Organic certifiers. In 1996 the EU-Commision declared Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil as a “Protected Geographical Indication” (with article 5 VO(EWG) Nr. 2081/92). This means every step in the process from pumpkin seeds into oil is tracked and documented from its origins on the field into the hands of our customers. No product is as inseparably connected to Styria than its Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil P.G.I.
