The beginnings of the Fram Oil Factory date back to 1750, which makes this oil factory in Fram the oldest one in Slovenia, and possibly in Europe too. We manufacture and sell high quality edible oils, produced in traditional ways.
Our pumpkin seed oil is not refined before it is bottled, but only filtered in a natural way through the deposition of small fragments at the bottom of the decanting barrels.
Tradition and small secrets in the processing of pumpkin seeds are passed on from one generation to another, thus giving origin to an excellent pumpkin seed oil.
Centuries have perfected our producers, making them incomparable on either side of the Slovenian border.
Organoleptic properties and production
Extra virgin pumpkin seed oil is dark green, almost black in colour. It has a rich and unique flavour, with a touch of caramel and aroma of the crust of freshly baked bread.
It is produced from the seeds of a special variety of pumpkin, which is green and yellow on the outside and orange on the inside. The pumpkin seeds are not used solely for producing oil, but also in diet, seeing as they represent a rich source of fatty omega acids, vitamins and minerals.
Pumpkin seed oil cannot be made from fresh, recently collected seeds. They have to be washed, dried and roasted at temperatures that do not exceed 95 degrees. From warm seeds the oil is made without the use of chemical additives but only by high-pressure processing them (at approximately 350 bar).
Pumpkin seed oil of the Štajersko-Prekmurje region is a certified foodstuff, certified by the certification body Bureau Veritas d. o. o. for the geographical indication under the certificate number PKP-013/2005.
