Camelina as Feed -

Biochemical Characterization of Flour from Seeds of Camelina sativa L. (Crantz) After Chemical Extraction of Oil – R. Russo – PhD Thesis, U of Milan, 2012

Summary: Camelina meal has high protein content, a balanced amino acid profile and a quite good ruminal digestibility of protein similar to rapeseed or soybean meal used in animal feed. Low-input Camelina biodiesel by-product could strongly substitute for high-input rapeseed or soybean biodiesel by-product in feed formulations. The characterization of Camelina meal described in this thesis suggests that research trials on the use of Camelina by-product in animal feed in Europe could be now undertaken.
