Our thanks go to our long-term partners in agriculture and our team, of course.


But we also say thank you to Dr. Franz Siegfried Wagner from the Institute Dr. Wagner in Lebring-St. Margarethen.


After all, he was the one who helped Styrian pumpkin seed oil to grow up.

At the anniversary, Dr. Wagner said: “And it is also a special anniversary for me personally to be able to professionally develop and support this special Styrian product for 25 years. Starting from the first steps to “growing up” what it is now:


A business card and an identity product of Styria.”

More than 25 years ago, Dr. Wagner developed parameters that can be used to describe and communicate the quality of pumpkin seed oil.


At the annual state awards, the pumpkin seed oils are examined, tasted and evaluated.


This tasting is carried out by a whole team of specially trained professional tasters.


“One pillar is the chemical-analytical pillar, where the laboratory examines whether the product meets European standards,” explains Wagner.


“The second pillar is the sensory pillar, where evaluations are made according to clearly defined quality parameters.”

How is it tasted and evaluated?

First you smell it and then you try it.


And you are allowed to sip and make smacking noises.


The so-called “Kernölschnalzen” (smacking of pumpkin seed oil) is necessary. This means that the aromatics and the noble, nutty taste of the pumpkin seed oil spread in your mouth.


Each pumpkin seed oil is tasted anonymously by two taster commissions.


The tasters on a commission agree on the freshness, purity, roasted note and consistency of the oil. The pumpkin seed oil is then tasted a second time.


If there are major differences between the two, there will be another tasting.

The color of pumpkin seed oil is assessed using a testing device from Dr. Wagner.


Styrian pumpkin seed oil is not just green, as you might think.


A dark green color with a reddish shimmer is typical for Styrian pumpkin seed oil.


No two pumpkin seed oils are the same. For an award-winning pumpkin seed oil, all steps must be perfect. From the field to the bottle.


“You have to know that the Styrian pumpkin seed has the memory of an elephant. “It remembers everything from harvesting to storage,” emphasizes Dr. Wagner.

How do you identify an award-winning Styrian pumpkin seed oil?

Logo 25 Jahre dauerhaft prämiert

These outstanding pumpkin seed oils can be identified by the golden sticker „Prämierter Kürbiskernölbetrieb 2024“.


And the best of the best have the sticker „25 Jahre durchgehend prämiert“.


Of course, we put this sticker on every bottle so that it is clearly visible! 😅


Our Styrian pumpkin seed oil PGI and Styrian organic pumpkin seed oil PGI have been awarded again in 2024!


As experts in pumpkin seed oil, we also produce pumpkin seed oil for farmers on a contract basis.


Of course with the same care.
