Organic Canola (Rapeseed) Oil (Ph. Eur. refined) and Its Use in the Pharmaceutical Industry
Our organic canola (rapeseed) oil (ph. eur. refined) is suitable for both internal and external pharmaceutical applications. Due to its high content of linoleic and linolenic acid and vitamin E, it is used as a component in dermatological ointments against inflammatory skin. The organic canola (rapeseed) oil is also widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a filling material for soft gelatin capsules. Used internally, the organic canola (rapeseed) oil’s good ingredients come into play as part of the artificial / enteral nutrition.
Our organic canola oil is cold-pressed from the erucic acid-free 00 rapeseed. Until the erucic acid-free cultivation in the 1970s, canola oil was only used in the technical field, as this fatty acid is suspected of promoting cardiovascular diseases. The canola plant is now one of the most important crops in the world.
