How Styrian Pumpkin Oil Is Made
Keeping in mind that this process has been carefully developed over many generations of pumpkin seed oil pressing, it is embedded in the Styrian culture and is hailed as one of the highlights of Austrian agricultural prowess.
After the raw Styrian pumpkin seeds have been mechanically crushed and ground up, they are loaded into a large cauldron together with a splash of clean spring water and a dash of high quality mountain salt. Salt is added to separate the fat (oil) from the fiber (protein) in order to facilitate the reaction of oil extraction – the salt stays with the press cake (protein) after pressing. Therefore there is no salt in the oil.
The pumpkin seed mash is then mixed and slowly warmed up to a maximum of 80 degrees C. ….warm enough to release the nutty aroma yet cold enough not to damage the important nutrients in the oil.
When the Press Master says it is ready for pressing the warm mash is hand scooped into a large pressing cylinder…one scoop, then one steel plate with holes in it, then another scoop, then another plate and so on until the cylinder is full. The full cylinder is slid into the press and slowly pressed by hydraulic pressure, about 300 bar or 4,350 psi until the Oil pours out the bottom. The Oil is then carefully transferred into large vats to rest for for a week or so before it is filled into bottles, no additional filtering, nothing added, nothing taken away, 100% pure, 100% natural. To watch the oil pressing in action CLICK HERE and forward to the 5:30 minute mark.
The rest of the seed (left in the pressing cylinder…called Press Cake) is removed and sold to other companies for further oil extraction or as animal feed. Styrian Gold also buys it, has it milled fine and offers it as a unique, stand alone, 100% pure, plant based pumpkin seed protein powder. To learn more about this protein powder CLICK HERE.
The Oil is then bottled in state-of-the-art, automated bottling and labeling equipment. Here is also where the P.G.I. traceability control number is printed on the back label and the P.G.I. identification logo sticker is added to the top of the cap. To learn more about the P.G.I.
