The pumpkin, of which Curcubita pepo is the most common variety, is a sight that is very familiar, especially around Halloween, when this bright orange squash is carved into lanterns. Pumpkins, like many other varieties of squash are native to North America.
The oil produced from the seeds of Pumpkins is rich in Omega-6 fatty acids. Due to the high percentage of Omega-6 linoleic acid it is not advisable to heat it. Therefore, our delicious Pumpkin Seed Oil is best used as a finishing or dressing oil, rather than a cooking oil. Pumpkin Seed Oil adds a smooth nutty flavour to any dish and is great on salads, pastas, soups and even drizzled on fruits or other desserts, especially those with a vanilla flavour.
Our Organic Pumpkin Oil is a versatile everyday oil produced from unrefined cold-pressed Pumpkin Seeds and is certified Organic, contains no trans fats, additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients.
