THE STUDY OF CAMELINA OIL CHARACTERISTICS PUBLISHEDDomil G., Popescu Iuliana
The main goal of this study was to characterised camelina oil obtained from marginal culture and cultivated by farmers in Banat region. New interest for this crop is determined by low input cost and oil quality. The Camelina oil characteristics were compared with rapeseed and soybean oil.The primary fatty acid identified in camelina oil was linolenic acid (C18:3; ) at 30.46 wt.%, with other unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic (C18:2; 17.32 wt.%), oleic (C18:1; 18.6 wt.%), and eicosenoic (C20:1; 12.4 wt.%) acids also detected in significant quantities.
