The article focuses on significant opportunities provided by oilseed rape varieties with specific oil profiles for growers according to Velcourt. Technical director Keith Norman explained that oil from High Oleic Low Linoleic (HOLL) varieties does not degenerate with high temperatures or frying. HOLL varieties typically yield 10% to 15% below conventional types. Health concerns surrounding the high levels of trans fatty acids found in conventional hydrogenated vegetable oils are likely to boost demand for healthier HOLL varieties according to Geoff Hall of Monsanto.
