New Food Ingredient Accepted

China’s National Health Commission accepted an application for a new food ingredient – camelina oilseed. Camelina seed oil is a plant oil extracted from the seeds of the camelina plant. Camelina belongs to the Brassicaceae family and is an annual or biennial oil-bearing crop. This oilseed crop originated in Europe, and is now grown in various parts of the world, including some areas of Asia. Camelina oilseed is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic acid, linoleic acid, and linolenic acid. These components are very beneficial to human health.(Source: China’s National Health Commission)
