Pumpkin Oil 8.5 oz Liquid
Not all pumpkin seeds are suitable for oil pressing. The species predominantly used for Flora Pumpkin Seed Oil are cucurbita stilbo and cucurbita maxima, both of which are grown in pesticide-free areas of Austria and Hungary. Pumpkin seeds produce a dark green, excellent- tasting oil. The unique Flora method of cold pressing retains the original rich flavor of pumpkin seeds while the dark color of the natural, unrefined oil signifies a high content of chlorophyll.* Flora Pumpkin Seed Oil has a high content of omega-3s, -6s and -9s, which makes it a highly nutritious and valuable oil.* Flora Pumpkin Seed Oil lends a delicate flavor to all kinds of salads, especially green leaf and potato salads. Flora Pumpkin Seed Oil contains: 43% polyunsaturated Linoleic acid (omega-6), 36% monounsaturated Oleic acid (omega-9), 14% polyunsaturated Alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3), 8% saturated fatty acids.
Flora Oils are truly cold-pressed, unrefined and unmodified. Most seeds used in our oils are grown organically by Canadian and U.S. farmers and are selected for their high quality and abundance of Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs. EFAs such as omega-3s and omega-6s are needed by our bodies, but the body cannot make them on its own. They must be obtained from dietary sources. Using only the finest ingredients, Flora is proud to support your healthy lifestyle with a full line of Pure Premium Oils. The quality of our oils is ensured by a third party certifying agency, Quality Assurance International (QAI). Unlike other commercially produced oils, Flora Oils are pressed in a light- and oxygen-free environment on highly sophisticated presses, where friction heat is kept well below 118F (50C) to produce truly cold-pressed oils that preserve the fragile EFAs. These oils are then bottled in non-reactive dark brown glass bottles to prevent deterioration from light, and are stamped for freshness. As an additional protective measure, we use a nitrogen flush to ensure oxidation cannot occur, and that top quality is maintained. Made with care and the utmost attention to detail, Flora Oils retain their authentic color, delicate flavor and primary nutritional characteristics. Providing valuable essential fatty acids from natural sources, these healthful, Pure Premium Oils complement a wide variety of nutritious meals.
