Odor: characteristic
Use: Natural rapeseed oil contains erucic acid, which is mildly toxic to humans in large doses but is used as a food additive in smaller doses. Canola is one of many selected cultivars of rapeseed bred to have a low erucic acid content. Canola was developed in Canada and its name is a contraction of "Canadian oil, low acid". The name was also chosen partly for marketing reasons, so successfully that the name is sometimes mis-applied to other cultivars of rapeseed.

Rapeseed from the cultivated plant Brassica Napus are used in the industrial, large scale production of fatty vegetable oils, similar to mustard seed oil, linseed oil, etc. The press cakes are used as cattle feed, but since many of the above mentioned types of seed contain essential oils which can be harmful to the cattle. the oil is usually removed by steam distillation of the press cake. The oil is almost colorless, mobile and of very pungent, lachrymatory odor and effect upon the mucous membranes. The odor is somewhat reminiscent of horseradish. Rapeseed Oil is considered toxic, but the lethal dose has not been published in connection with this statement. It is conceivable however, that the oil is sufficiently harmful as to justify its deletion without hesitation from the list of materials. It should be kept in mind that the term Rapeseed Oil may cover two entirely different products which are the fatty, fixed, edible oil and the poisonous, volatile essential oil. tsca definition 2008: extractives and their physically modified derivatives. it consists primarily of the glycerides of the fatty acids erucic, linoleic and oleic. (brassica napus).
