Ah so that's what that stuff is, I used to look out the window during car rides as a child and wonder why they had a bunch of yellow flowers in a field seemingly being useless.

Yep, I looked up the uses for rapeseed and apparently one of its main uses is as industrial lubricant... very unfortunate use especially given the very unfortunate name of "rapeseed".

It's also Canola oil.

Renamed for obvious reasons.

"CANOLA" is an acronym for:

Canadian oil, low acid

I don't think God ever meant for people to consume rapeseed because of the amount of erucic acid in it.

It wasn't until the 1970's that a special variety of rapeseed was bred with low acid.

This stuff constitutes a large portion of "oatly" brand oat milk. It's terrible for you as well, right? I like to stick to olive oil when I can

Coconut oil is great. Palm oil is acceptable but the taste is meh.

Palm oil is bad simply because third world subhumans cause deforestation to plant more palm.

Fats that are solid at room temperature and olive oil are good for you (less Omega 6 LM, oils traditionally used before the industrial revolution).

Why is it called "rapeseed" though? Lol

The term "rape" derives from the Latin word for turnip, rapa or rapum, cognate with the Greek word rhapys.[8]

From wikipedia
