Camelina sativa is an oilseed known since the bronze age, that is a member of the Brassicacee family, like Colza, Mustard and Turnip. It is also called false Flax or wild Flax because of its similarity to Flax oil.
From harvest, an oily seed is obtained, from which come an oil rich in Omega 3, Omega 6 and other polyunsaturated fatty acids. It has a perfect balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 (2:1 ratio). It is also an excellent source of Vitamin E, known fot its anti-oxidant properties.
Camelina’s crop has a very low environmental impact thanks to its adaptability to low temperatures and semi-arid climates. It could be cultivated also in marginal areas. It is a very strong plant that can resist to several disease, parasites and insects; for this reason, it doesn’t need plant protection products or herbicides.
For these reasons Camelina’s crop is useful to development in poor countries and areas and doesn’t create pollution or over-exploitation of the soil.
