Camelina Reviews -

Factors Affecting the Composition and Use of Camelina – J.G. Crowley and A. Fröhlich – Teasgasc Crops Research Centre 1998

Summary: A three year study established that camelina is a very suitable crop to grow in Ireland, producing 2.5 t/ha of high quality seed (42-47% oil) with no agrochemical inputs required. The oil contains 35 to 40% linolenic acid compared to 8% in rape and soya oils. The oil does not deteriorate during refining or storage and can be used in a number of oil based products such as spreads and salad dressings.
