Canola (Onyx)
 Canola (Onyx) 

Canola is a low erucic acid derivation of rapeseed, an oilseed plant with roots in ancient civilization. The word "canola" is derived from "Canadian oil, low acid.” Once considered a specialty crop in Canada, canola has evolved into a major North American cash crop.

Canola is standardized under the U.S. Standards for Canola.
