Stabilization of Camelina Oil with Synthetic and Natural Antioxidants – A. Fröhlich, G. O’Dea, R. Hackett, D. O’Beirne, D. Ni Eidhin, and J. Burke – Journal of the American Oil Chemists’ Society 2012

Summary: Camelina oil was found to have a much lower Oil Stability Index (OSI) and higher p-anisidine rates in the oven storage test than either rapeseed or sunflower oils. Stabilization of camelina oil was evaluated with 21 food grade synthetic and natural antioxidants and antioxidant formulations, using both the OSI  and the oven storage test. Accordingly, camelina oils stabilized with TBHQ/citric acid and rosemary extract/ascorbyl palmitate formulations were more stable than rapeseed and sunflower oils, respectively in terms of OSI induction times and p-anisidine rates.
