WHAT IS CANOLA
Canola, a Canadian success story, has its roots in the development of low-acid rapeseed varieties in Canada. The name "Canola" is a combination of "Canadian" and "oil, low acid," reflecting the changes in the new varieties. The canola cultivars grown in Canada belong to the Brassica napus species, commonly known as Argentine canola. Originally, Brassica campestris and Brassica napus had distinct origins, with the former originating in the Himalayan foothills and the latter likely originating in the Mediterranean region. The name "Canola" was initially a trademark of the Rapeseed Association of Canada, created by condensing "Can" from Canada and "ola" from oil.
Canola meal is a valuable byproduct derived from the processing of canola seeds during oil extraction. This protein-rich meal serves as a crucial component in animal feed for livestock, poultry, and fish. Known for its excellent amino acid profile, canola meal is a widely used protein source in animal nutrition.
Canola Seed Processing: Canola meal is obtained as a result of processing canola seeds for oil extraction.
Protein Source: It is a highly regarded protein source in animal feed for livestock, poultry, and fish.
Amino Acid Profile: Canola meal is known for its excellent amino acid composition, contributing to its nutritional value.
Canola oil is a vegetable oil derived from Brassica napus seeds. Developed in Saskatchewan and Manitoba during the 1960s and 1970s. Canada is the largest global producer, mainly in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Widely used for its sustainability, health benefits, and premium protein content.
Canola oil is known for its heart-healthy properties and suitability for various cooking methods due to its high smoke point and low saturated fat content.
