What is Rapeseed Meal?
Rapeseed meal is nothing but a finely powdered substance obtained as a bi-product when rapeseed is processed for oil. The meal is a major supplement of protein (minimum 36-38% of protein by weight) only next to soybean and is known to be cheaper of the two options. It also contains a very low amount of glucosinolates, which cause a metabolism disruption in cattle and pigs.
Rapeseed ‘oil cake’ is also used as a fertilizer in China and even for ornamentals such as Bonsai. It contains high sources of nitrogen and phosphorous and is even an essential source of vitamins (B and E), minerals, amino acids (methionine and lysine) and fiber (13%).
