Canola is one of two cultivars of rapeseed or Brassica campestris. Canola seeds are used to produce edible oil which has lower levels of erucic acid than traditional rapeseed oils and is used to produce livestock feed because it has reduced levels of the toxic glucosinolates. Canola was originally naturally bred from rapeseed in Canada in the early 1970s, but has a different nutritional profile in addition to much less erucic acid. The name "canola" was derived from "Canadian oil, low acid" in 1978. The price of canola oil is indexed to contracts on the Chicago Board of Trade (‘CBOT’) soybean futures market and in winter tends to trade at a premium and in summer at par. Generally, canola trades on average at the approximate price of soy bean oil plus five percent. In 2007 worldwide production of canola was 51 million metric tonnes and production for 2010 is estimated to be 60 million metric tonnes of seed and 24 million metric tonnes of canola oil.
