Abstract and Summary
Crismer Values of rapeseed oil extracted from different Canadian varieties are reported. Seventeen samples of oil containing up to 4.1% erucic acid gave an average value of 68.45±0.92 C with a range of 67.10 to 69.29. Crismer Values of high erucic acid oils (20~45% erucic acid) ranged from 76 to 82 C.
