Rape seed oil was produced in the 19th century as a source of a lubricant for steam engines. It was less useful as food for animals or humans because it has a bitter taste due to high levels of glucosinates. Varieties have now been bred to reduce the content of glucosinolates, yielding more palatable oil. This has had the side effect that the oil contains much less erucic acid.Canola oil comes from – rapeseed.
Rapeseeds grow into important oil plants in China, Canada, India,France & some other European Countries. Rapeseed, also called colza, is a member of the Cruciferae family and grows to a height of 75-175 cm. It has yellow flowers, blue-green leaves and is heavily branched with deep, fibrous taproot. The seeds are small, round and black-red in colour. As the oil content of rapeseed is around 43 %, the processing is usually made in two steps: pre-pressing plus solvent extraction. Sometimes only deep-pressing is applied.
