rape Brassica napus, also known as cole, coleseed, or colza. Grown for its seed, as source of oil for both industrial and food use. Varieties low in erucic acid are termed ‘0’ or single low; varieties also low in glucosinolates are termed ‘00’ or double low, both these being undesirable constituents of ordinary rapeseed. Oil is very rich in mono‐unsaturates (60%), contains 33% polyunsaturates, and only 7% saturates.
