Cold Pressed Unrefined Squash Seed Oils and Hand Roasted Pumpkin Seed Snacks

SQUASH OILS & SNACKS

Stony Brook WholeHeartedFoods creates handcrafted squash seed oils made in small batches at our Finger Lakes production kitchen. Each oil varies in color and flavor profile depending on the variety of squash, with colors ranging from dark emerald green (pumpkin) to a rich golden hue (butternut). The flavor profiles are equally varied, ranging from mild, savory umami flavors to the more pronounced taste of roasted peanuts or hazelnuts. For more information about our locally grown squash varieties, see About The Squash.

Butternut Squash Seed OilBSSO - expeller pressed butternut squash oil

A flavorful, healthy and local alternative to European olive oil. Our company's first bottled oil, butternut squash seed oil (BSSO) debuted in the fall of 2008. With the help of food scientists at Cornell University, we 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.

BRINED & ROASTED PUMPKIN SEEDS

Pepitas - Roasted Pumpkin Seed Pumpkin Seeds - a healthy snack with nutritional benefits

Finger Lakes grown, brined and roasted pumpkin seeds (aka pepitas) are a crispy crunchy snack loaded with nutrients like Vitamin E, zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium, omega 3 and omega 9 oils, lutein and beta carotene. These are the same seeds we roast and press to create our pumpkin seed oil. Seeds are dry roasted at low temperatures to preserve the delicate omega-3 fats and optimum flavor.

The vast majority of pumpkin seeds are grown in China, Stony Brook is one of the very few US producers using domestically grown seeds.

Eat right out of the bag or sprinkle over your salads, granola, grind to sprinkle over soups, add to pesto or make a mean Mexican mole sauce.
