The pumpkin seed oil has long been called “natural gold” for its rich complex of beneficial substances and golden amber colour.
Pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan, which is an essential amino acid that enters the body with food and turns into serotonin, and further into melatonin.
These hormones are responsible for our high spirits, sound sleep, anxiety reduction, and stress relief.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids found in oil strengthen the membranes of brain cells, and preserve the health of our nails and hair. They help our body to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins easily. Keep in mind that Omega-3 and Omega-6 are not synthesized by the body independently, and food is where we source them from.
Pumpkin seed oil soothes the stomach walls, so it is recommended for the prevention and treatment of gastritis.
Vitamin A, preserved in oil, helps maintain good vision and prevents eye dryness, while vitamin E strengthens the immune response and slows down the ageing process.
We believe that food can be delicious and healthy at the same time. Morning oatmeal will seem a completely different dish, if you cook it with vegetable milk, and add nuts, dried fruit and a couple of drops of flavoursome pumpkin oil. The perfect combination for an energy boost for the entire day!
Switching from refined oil to pumpkin seed oil for your daily salads dressing helps you feel better, and provides the pep every time you use it.
Try a combination of Bioteca oil with grilled vegetable salad, sauerkraut, or make a delicious salad with beef, pickled cucumbers, bell pepper, and arugula.
Pumpkin seed oil goes perfectly well with legumes, lentil porridge or quinoa.
We recommend making a sauce of chopped parsley, lemon peel, garlic, pumpkin seed oil and pumpkin seeds to garnish veal with vegetables.
Homemade pastries imply fresh and proven ingredients, soft fluffy dough and fragrant aroma. Pumpkin bread with raisins, walnuts and flavoured with oil by Bioteca is a creatively different addition to the first courses, which will surely be loved by the whole family.
We do not recommend using cold-pressed oils for frying, because heat minimizes their useful properties.
