Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil
Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil and Its Use in the Food Industry
The organic pumpkin seed oil from SanaBio is an excellent edible oil in the food industry, for example for salads and sauces. Surprisingly, the nutty taste of organic pumpkin seed oil also goes very well with cheese dishes and sweet dishes such as sorbets. Like most virgin, cold-pressed oils, organic pumpkin seed oil develops bitter substances when heated too much and is therefore not suitable for deep-frying.
Its high proportion of vitamins, trace elements, and minerals contribute to a healthy diet.
The pumpkin originally comes from North America. It was brought to Europe by Spanish conquerors about 400 years ago. The pumpkin is a berry, 15 to 40 cm tall, round or oval, orange to green and with fibrous pulp. The kernels from which the pumpkin seed oil is cold-pressed are flat, oval and light yellow to yellow. The seed is yellow to green in color, tasty and rich in vitamins and fiber.
