Catherine Folkersen, SaskCanola on New Markets for Canola Meal

The amount of canola acres in Western Canada has steadily rose over the past decade.  Apart of the growth of a crop not only depends on the primary use of the crop but also the by products.  Catherine Folkersen is with SaskCanola and she believes that there is a much larger potential for canola meal.  Many times we just hear about canola oil but Catherine believes with some research being done at the University of Saskatchewan it may lead to growth for the uses of canola meal.

Canola meal has growth potential in the animal feed market and also the human food market.  Catherine mentions that canola meal has a great nutritional profile and may be of significant interest to the vegetarian or vegan consumer.  The more demand or value that is placed on the canola meal, the better it has to be for the canola grower.
