Butternut Squash Seed Oil
A flavorful, healthy and local alternative to European olive oil adding unique flavor to everything from roasted vegetables to pasta salad to oatmeal. Food scientists at Cornell University discovered a delicious, all-natural oil locked up in squash seed that would otherwise be destined for compost. This oil is released by precise roasting and expeller pressing without the use of chemicals, excessive heat or harsh filtration. This gently processed oil contains no hydrogenated fats, chemical additives, or preservatives.
The oil contains only one ingredient: oil from roasted pressed varietal squash seeds. We produce the oil in small batches, ensuring a level of quality from seed to bottle to shelf.
The oil's nutty taste makes a great replacement for nuts in baked goods or stuffings for those with nut allergies.
