Castelmuro Pure Roasted Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil

250ml Bottle - Austria

Made from Styrian pumpkinseeds, this Pumpkin seed oil has an intense nutty taste and is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids.

It makes a great pumpkin seed oil salad dressing. The typical Styrian dressing is made of pumpkin seed oil and apple cider vinegar. The oil is also used sometimes for desserts atop or vanilla ice cream - giving it a nutty taste - flavor reminiscent of the nuts you would put on top of your ice cream sundae.  Add a little chocolate sauce, and you are ready to go!

Styrian pumpkin seed oil is considered a real delicacy in Austria and Slovenia, and few drops are added to pumpkin soup and other winter dishes; adds a nice and unusual punch. Use it to finish roasted winter squash or as a dipping sauce for butternut fries. If you are looking to buy pumpkin seed oil as a cooking oil, however, know that cooking destroys its essential fatty acids and will cause the oil to turn bitter.

There are claims that the phytonutrients in Styrian pumpkin seed oil help prevent and treat benign prostatic hyperplasia.
