Rapeseed Oil



Rapeseed oil is produced from the seeds of the rape plant, a yellow flowering plant belonging to the mustard or cabbage family. There are two main types of rapeseed oil: industrial and culinary. Industrial rapeseed oil is mostly used in chemical and automotive industries and is high in erucic acid, a compound that may be dangerous to humans when consumed in large amounts. In the United States and Canada, culinary rapeseed oil is known as "canola oil."
