Mustard oil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (623 words)
Mustard oil is composed mostly of the fatty acids oleic acid, linoleic acid and erucic acid.
In India, mustard oil is generally heated almost to smoking before it is used for cooking; this may be an attempt to reduce the content of noxious substances, and does reduce the strong smell and taste.
In India the restrictions on mustard oil are viewed as an attempt by foreign multi-national corporations to replace mustard oil with canola oil (a variety of rapeseed with a low erucic acid content).
