If you've never tasted or heard of camelina, you might want to rethink that thought, because camelina has been around in Europe for over 3,000 years. Recently rediscovered by scientists, camelina grown in Quebec has been impressive in terms of both its nutritional properties and its unique taste.Camelina oil contains several antioxidants called tocopherols, one of which is vitamin E. It contains more antioxidants than most other popular oils and seeds. The antioxidants in camelina also help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and inflammatory diseases. In addition, camelina is rich in omega-3s. This good fat helps reduce bad blood cholesterol and has neuroprotective effects.
