So, what is colza?

Colza, also known as rapeseed, is a versatile and nutrient-dense food ingredient. It is a member of the Brassica family and is grown primarily for its oil, which is high in healthy unsaturated fats and low in saturated fats. In addition to its oil, colza is a good source of protein, fiber, and various micronutrients like vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium. Colza oil has a mild, nutty flavor and a high smoke point, making it an ideal choice for cooking, baking, and frying. Its numerous health benefits and culinary versatility make it a popular ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
