BIO cold pressed pumpkin seed oil KOCBEK is made from selected and refined pumpkin seeds of the highest quality . There is no seed treatment in the cold pressing process. The seeds are not ground, heated or roasted, but the oil is squeezed out of the whole seeds. The oil is therefore slightly lighter – greenish-red in color, with a very delicate smell and a taste similar to that of raw pumpkin seeds.
In cold processing, the yield is much lower, as this processing method requires at least 6 kilograms of pumpkin seeds to make a liter of cold pressed pumpkin seed oil.
The oil retains all the nutrients (vitamins and minerals) contained in the seeds due to the cold pressing process.
Cold pressed pumpkin seed oil is rich in tocopherols, as it contains about 50mg of vitamin E per 100g of oil.*
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.
