Camelina sativa (gold of pleasure) originates from south-eastern Europe and south-western Asia. Camelina sativa is a flowering plant of the Brassicaceae family. Also known under the names: Seeded linseed or yolk. Camelina is a short-season plant (85-100 days) and grows well in the temperate zone on light or medium soils. The plant is usually sown in spring from March to May, but can also be sown in autumn in mild climates. As a summer or winter annual, gold of pleasure grows to a height of 30-120 cm, with branched stems that become woody at maturity. Camelina is often used as an alternative oil plant. The oil, which is rich in linolenic acid, can be used both as an edible oil and in the non-food sector. Our cold-pressed gold-of-pleasure oil is gently extracted from the seeds of the gold-of-pleasure plant.
