Rape Seeds

Oilseed rape (or canola) is an important oil-bearing crop. The rapeseed/canola oil is employed in food industry as well as in technology, such as in bio-diesel production (as a fatty acid methyl ester). The importance of rapeseed cakes in feed industry and for energy purposes is also considerable. The technology for rapeseed oil pressing at Farmet stems from extensive practical experience with this plant. The process of rapeseed pressing is designed to take into account the desired properties of the resulting oil (particularly the phosphorus content) and the content of nutritional and anti-nutritional substances in the cakes (e.g., glucosinolates, by-pass protein).
