whats up guys!

does anyone know where I can get some original austrian pumpkin seed oil? just in case someone is wondering what I mean with original - I'm looking for the one with that sticker that certifies that the oil was produced according to certain quality criteria set by the european union.

I saw some oil here in LA that say "styrian roasted" but the one I got was far away from the oil I had back in Austria.

So here's my question again - where can I get that super delicious, dark green, intensiv smelling and tasting austrian pumpkin seed oil? if you know a brand or a shop where I can get it, please let me know

thx a lot

Scott

      hi scott
      ,
      I bought some original austrian (styrian to be more specific) pumpkin seed oil at the cheesestore of beverly hills the other day. they have a brand called "styrian gold" - it also has the sticker you were talking about on top.

      the guy from the store was really nice and let me taste the oil and it was amazing. to be honest its a little pricy but if you're looking for the real stuff you should go there and get it!

      have a good one

        Vicente Foods on San Vicente stocks one brand of the genuine stuff from Austria. Don't remember if it has the exact certification you seek, though.
