Canola meal is a commodity which is currently sold as a low value animal feed ingredient. It is a composite of soluble and insoluble protein, fiber, soluble non-structural carbohydrates, phytate and minerals.


Canola meal contains approximately 36% protein. Canola protein is of high quality because of its good balance of essential amino acids and the low molecular weight of the major storage protein. The amino acid balance provides excellent nutritional value and the low molecular weight results in very low antigenicity, which suggests that food allergenicity issues will be minimal.
