So, what is le colza?

Le colza, also known as rapeseed, is a versatile and nutritious food ingredient that is commonly used in cooking and food production. This plant-based oil is extracted from the seeds of the Brassica napus plant, which is native to Europe and Asia. Le colza is a good source of healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as vitamin E and antioxidants. It has a mild, nutty flavor that makes it a popular choice for salad dressings, marinades, and baking. Le colza oil has a high smoke point, which makes it ideal for frying and sautéing, and it is also used in the production of margarine and mayonnaise.
