Pumpkin Seed Oil Pumpkin seed oil is a culinary specialty from what used to be part of the Austro Hungarian Empire and is now southeastern Austria (Styria), eastern Slovenia (Styria and Prekmurje), Central Transylvania, Orăștie-Cugir region of Romania, north western Croatia , and adjacent regions of Hungary. The viscous oil is light to very dark green to dark red in colour depending on the thickness of the observed sample. The oil appears green in thin layers and red in thick layers, an optical phenomenon called dichromatism. Pumpkin oil is one of the substances with the strongest dichromatism. When used together with yoghurt, the oil turns bright green and is sometimes referred to as "green-gold".Pumpkin seed oil has an intense nutty taste and is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. Pumpkin seed oil serves as a salad dressing. The typical Styrian dressing consists of pumpkin seed oil and cider vinegar. The oil is also used for desserts, giving ordinary vanilla ice cream a nutty taste. It is considered a real delicacy in Austria and Slovenia, and a few drops are added to pumpkin soup and other local dishes. Using it as a cooking oil, however, destroys its essential fatty acids. Pumpkin seed oil has one of the highest concentrations of polyunsaturated fats of any food source.

Pumpkin Seed Oil For A Healthy Lifestyle
The cold-pressed natural pumpkin oil, also referred to as pepita oil, is extracted from the seeds of pumpkin, present in its thick shell. It’s packed with nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Beta-carotene, Vitamin E, Potassium, and Iron. Plant seeds, including pumpkin oil, are generally considered a good source of unsaturated fats and antioxidants (like phytosterols). The antioxidants present in pumpkin seeds can provide defense against oxidative stressors, which may negatively affect your skin. Beta-carotene and vitamin E are also known to improve the health of the hair. Since the GreenFields pumpkin oil is cold-pressed, it does not affect the original taste of pumpkin seed oil and can be used in both savory and sweets dishes.
