Oil in progress – P1160252

Every canola plant forms 60-100 pods, each pod filled with 20-30 seeds. Once ripe, those tiny 1 mm seeds are harvested and taken to a crushing facility. The average canola seed is 45% oil. One bushel or 50 lbs (22.7 kg) of seed will make 11 litres of oil. This versatile, heart-healthy oil is a staple in our pantry used for cooking, baking, salad oils and dips.
