Our premium “Styrian pumpkin seed oil” is protected by the European Union “Protected Geographical Indication” (PGI) label.
It must not be extracted from any other seeds than the “Styrian pumpkin seed” variety grown in precisely defined Austrian regions, and pressed by no other than those oil mills which are located in specific areas of the southern Styrian region. A seal with a code number was introduced to prove the authenticity of Styrian pumpkin seed oil. We manufacture Pelzmann’s “100% virgin pumpkin seed oil” by the same careful, traditional process as our “Styrian pumpkin seed oil”. We also use high-quality, skinless pumpkin seeds of the Styrian oil squash type (cucurbita pepo l. var. styriaca) from long-term suppliers in select producing areas all over the world.
