Glucosinolate content and composition as parameters of quality of Camelina seed – A. Schuster and W. Friedt – Industrial Crops and Products – 1997

Summary: Camelina is an ancient cruciferous crop which is showing highly valuable ingredients and agronomical traits and could be an alternative for non-food usages. Via HPLC analyses a total of three sulfinyl-glucosinolates were determined in the seeds of Camelina. The mean glucosinolate content of ten genotypes grown at seven locations in Germany varied from 18.0 to 31.4 μmol/g dry seed.
