What is pumpkin seed butter?
Imagine peanut butter with pumpkin seeds instead of peanuts.
Pumpkin Seed Butter can be used in the same way as other nut and seed butters. It makes a great spread and gives a different flavour profile in sauces and dressings. Use it as a substitute for Peanut Butter, Tahini and Sunflower Seed Butter.

Production steps vegan butters and oils

- After pressing the oil sludge settles to the bottom of the oil barrel. (very nutritious)
- The fresh oil is then carefully being decanted then bottled, capped and labeled.
- The oil sludge is being mixed with ground pumpkin seeds to make fresh pumpkin seed butter.
- Followed by bottling, capping and proper labeling.
Cold Pressing Technique
At Ostro Organics we use a modern low-pressure screw press to extract the oil from the nuts and seeds. Focusing on low pressure and low heat extraction. Higher heat means higher yield but also more alteration when it comes to its molecular structure. At Ostro Organics, we press every oil at a different heat point. Ranging from 9° to 29° degrees Celsius.
Ostro Organics presses oils and vegan butters under very low pressure and minimal temperatures. Currently ranging between 9° and 29° Celsius. Resulting in low yield oil extraction, obtaining a yield of roughly 55% depending on the variety of nut and seed.
Higher yields can be easily reached by applying industry standards including more pressure, heat, solvents and adding other agents to the extraction process.
