Rapeseed Oil

Rapeseed is a bright-yellow flowering member of the mustard or cabbage family.

Oil is made from the black seeds of the rapeseed plant.

The name derives from the Latin for turnip and was first recorded in English at the end of the 14th century. 

Older writers usually distinguished the turnip and rape by the adjectives 'round' and 'long' rooted, respectively.

In the 19th century Rapeseed oil was produced as a source of lubricant for steam engines.

Rapeseed is now grown for the production of animal feed, vegetable oil for human consumption, and biodiesel.

Rapeseed produces great quantities of nectar, and honeybees produce a light-colored but peppery honey from it. 

The Honey must be extracted immediately after processing is finished, because it will otherwise quickly granulate in the honeycomb and be impossible to extract. 

The honey is usually blended with milder honeys, if used for table use or sold as bakery grade. 

Worldwide production of rapeseed has increased sixfold between 1975 and 2007.

Rapeseed Oil has the lowest saturated fat of any culinary oil and less than half that of Olive Oil.

It has 10 times more Omega 3 than Olive Oil.

It is a good source of Vitamin E.

It is safe to cook at high temperatures with a burning point of 230c much higher than Olive Oil.
