Canada Golden Camelina Oil
Camelina Oil was traditionally cultivated in Northern Europe hundreds of years ago as an oil seed crop.
Archeological evidence shows it has been grown in Europe for at least 3,000 years. This edible oil comes from seeds of Camelina Sativa, a yellow flowering plant. Camelina is also known as false flax or gold-of-pleasure and is part of the Brassicaceae family, more commonly known as the mustard family.
Camelina Sativa is well suited for Saskatchewan's colder climate, flourishing naturally on the prairies. It is drought tolerant and is commonly used as a rotation crop for soil nutrition.
