These varieties produce healthy, low-transfat and stable frying oil and unlike standard rapeseed oils, Vistive oil requires no hydrogenation to make it stable when being used at high temperatures and so offers major health benefits from greatly reduced levels of transfats which are produced from the hydrogenation process.


HOLL oilseed rape has no specific agronomic needs that differ from conventional oil seed rape (OSR) varieties. The main differences come in preventing contamination to ensure the quality of the High Oleic, Low Linolenic oil profile is preserved.
