Štajersko prekmursko pumpkin seed oil Slovenia – The differences between light and dark label

Since 2013, Štajersko prekmursko pumpkin seed oil Slovenia has been an official Slovenian product (oil entered into the register of protected geographical indications), registered in the European Union. The Štajerska and Prekmurje regions have a long-standing tradition of growing pumpkins for oil and processing pumpkin seeds into pumpkin oil, dating back to the 18th century. The evidence for this claim can be found in the fact that the first oil mill in Štajerska has been established as early as 1750 in Fram.

At Kocbek oil mill, we have been using the traditional processing methods that were first introduced in 1929 up to this day. We work closely with local (Slovenian) pumpkin growers and use exclusively pumpkin seeds of Slovenian origin.

Dark label

At the Kocbek oil mill, the Štajersko prekmursko pumpkin seed oil Slovenia has been labelled with a dark (green) labelin accordance with the pumpkin seed milling process.

Oils packaged under the dark label are made from seeds that are selected and sorted before processing. This is done with a machine that removes impurities (pumpkin flesh and peel, peeled or damaged seeds – that which had been picked from pumpkins by hand or with a machine) to obtain clean and undamaged seeds, which consequently produce oil of the highest possible quality. 

With the hot pressing process, the seeds are ground using real stone, resulting in an oil that is somewhat darker in color, more viscous and has a slightly different flavor.
