Pumpkin seed oil or “the green gold”, as the Austrians call it, is considered one of the healthiest and finest vegetable oils in the world. It is to most Austrians what olive oil is to their Italian neighbours. Styrian Gold has a long history in Styria, the southernmost Austrian federal state where it has been popular since the late 18th century for it’s exquisite nutty taste and the numerous health benefits that its consumption may bring along. Back in 1773, Austrian Empress Maria Theresa declared.:
“This healthy oil is unique and much too precious
… it shall not be used as a culinary delicacy
anymore but shall be collected and
distributed only by the apothecaries.”
What was once an alpine secret is now available to sophisticated salad lovers and people pursuing a healthy lifestyle in the North America. We bring you this natural delicacy to savour and enjoy.
