Kocbek’s BIO Cold-Pressed Pumpkin Seed Oil is made from carefully selected and purified pumpkin seeds of the highest quality. During the cold-pressing process, there is no further treatment of the seeds. The seeds are not ground, heated, or roasted; only the oil is extracted from the whole seeds. As a result, the oil has a slightly lighter greenish-red color, a very gentle aroma, and a taste that resembles raw pumpkin seeds. The production yield of cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil is significantly lower, as at least six kilograms of pumpkin seeds are required to produce one liter of oil using this method.
Due to the cold-pressing process, the oil retains all the nutrients (vitamins and minerals) present in the seeds. BIO Cold-Pressed Pumpkin Seed Oil is a rich source of tocopherols, containing approximately 50 mg of vitamin E per 100 grams of oil.
In Kocbek’s oil mill, they still uphold the tradition of processing that began in 1929. They collaborate with local producers and use exclusively Slovenian-origin raw materials (pumpkin seeds).
Cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil differs from the oil obtained through the warm-pressing method. Consequently, the oil produced through cold pressing lacks the characteristics of warm-pressed oil. It has a lighter color, is less dense, has a subtle or almost no aroma, and its taste is very mild, resembling raw pumpkin seeds.
Due to its mild flavor, you can use cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil in various culinary preparations. It can be used in sauces, as a pasta dressing, in risottos, in cold and hot meat dishes, and pairs well with fish. It can also be used in desserts and for preparing various spreads.
Store the oil in a sealed container, in a cool and dark place.
