Canola is the registered trademark of the Canola Council of Canada for the seed, oil and meal derived from rapeseed cultivars low in erucic acid and low in glucosinolates. Conversion to canola cultivars on a commercial scale started in 1976; in 1981, ca. 87% of the brassica-based oil crop in Canada was of canola quality. Canola oil is the most important oil in Canada. Processing of the oil is, in its essentials, conventional. A few problems not usually encountered with other oils are its… 
9 – Oil Refining
Possible causes for decreased stability of canola oil processed from green seed
Canola oil extracted from seeds with a high-chlorophyll content can contain chlorophyll derivatives in excess of 30 ppm. When processed, this oil has been observed to be less stable than oil
Chemical analysis and characterization of (Brassica napus) Canola oil seed
Canola oil produced from the seeds of Brassica napus and Brassica rapa. These cultivars, low in erucic acid and glucosinolates, are very different from high erucic acid rapeseed oil in chemical,
Breeding Canola (Brassica napus L.) for Protein in Feed and Food
An overarching review of the canola protein chain from the perspective of a plant breeder is provided, spanning from the genetic regulation of seed storage proteins in the crop to advancements of novel breeding technologies and their application in improving protein quality in canola.
Minor Components in Canola Oil and Effects of Refining on These Constituents: A Review
Crude canola oil is composed mainly of triacylglycerols but contains considerable amounts of desirable and undesirable minor components. Crude canola oil is refined in order to remove undesirable
Genomic-Assisted Breeding in Oilseed Brassicas
The conventional breeding as well as modern biotechnological tools has led to the improvement of various agronomically important quantitative and qualitative characters in oilseed brassicas.
Chemical aspects of chlorophyll breakdown products and their relevance to canola oil stability
The production of prooxidant compounds brought about through subjecting chlorophyll a or pheophytin a to laboratory-scale processing in the presence of canola oil or tricapryloylglycerol was
Various concentrations of erucic acid in mustard oil and mustard.
Pigment removal from canola oil using chlorophyllase
Frost-damaged or prematurely harvested canola seed (rapeseed) may yield oil with a high chlorophyll content (50–60 µg/ml). Enzymatic hydrolysis of chlorophyll, added to buffer/surfactant,


Clay-heat refining of edible oils
The treatment of crude edible oils with sodium hydroxide solutions is the standard refining procedure in the industry. Refining with NaOH removes free fatty acids, some phosphatides, proteinaceous
Sulfur content of rapessed oils
Sulfur contents in rapeseed oils were determined by reduction with Raney nickel, acidification, and titration of released H2S with mercuric acetate. The sulfur contents decreased with successive
Content of chlorophylls and carotenes in rapeseed oil
The content of the green components in crude rapeseed oil, namely chlorophylls A and B, as well as the products of their decomposition pheophytins A and B, were determined by means of the
Composition of seeds of cruciferous oil crops
Several species of the Cruciferae family are presently used as oilseed crops, viz.,Brassica campestris (turnip rape and sarson),B. juncea (brown or yellow mustard),B. napus (rape),Crambe abyssinica
Specific gravities of rapeseed and canbra oils
Abstract and SummaryNew varieties of rapeseed oils grown in Canada have bess than 1% erucic (cis-13-docosenoic) acid and also a reduction in cis-11-eicosenoic acid. The replacement of these acids
Steam-Refined soybean oil: II. effect of degumming methods on removal of prooxidants and phospholipids
The first paper in this series described the effect of refining and degumming methods on the quality of steam- and caustic-refined soybean oils. Flavor evaluations demonstrated that phosphoric
Superdegumming, a New Degumming Process and its Effect on the Effluent Problems of Edible Oil Refining
In conventional refining processes most vegetable oils are first waterdegummed and subsequently refined with caustic or with phosphoric acid/caustic. In these treatments also the non-hydratable
Comparison of oxalic acid and phosphoric acid as degumming agents for vegetable oils
For many years, phosphoric acid has been used for degumming vegetable oils with high phosphatide content prior to alkali refining. One disadvantage of this technique is the resulting undesirable
Processing effects on oil quality
Processing can have rather strong effects on oil quality. It is very important to avoid deleterious factors such as long processing times, contact with oxygen, high temperature, light, and other
Fatty acid composition of oils extracted from Canadian weed seeds
The fatty acid composition of the diethyl ether extract from nine varieties of Canadian weed seeds is reported. Fatty acid compositions forRumex pseudonatronatus L. Borbus,Setaria viridis L. Beauv.,
