Protein From Rapeseed Oil Production Could Be Used For Human Nutrition – Study

January 28, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Providing enough protein to meet the nutritional needs of the world’s burgeoning population has become a challenging task. Now German researchers have found in a clinical study involving 28 volunteers that the protein-rich residue from the production of rapeseed oil – normally used as animal feed – is nutritionally equivalent to the protein isolate from soy. At the moment, however, European law prevents rapeseed protein from being used for human nutrition. The findings suggest that rapeseed protein isolate could become an “important protein source for human consumption” and may help reverse the European ban on human use.
