The seed of Brassica campestris and other Brassica species, whose oil is used in the manufacture of lubricants and canola oil.

In this study, we found that fermentation changed the nutritional characteristics of rapeseed meal (Table 2).
However, heating rapeseed meal to 145[degrees]C was shown to reduce in situ intestinal CP disappearance relative to an untreated control, while there were no negative effects on post-ruminal CP availability when meal was heated to 125[degrees]C (McKinnon et al., 1995).
Samples of rapeseed meal, diets, feces and urine were analyzed for gross energy (GE) via adiabatic oxygen bomb calorimeter (Parr Instruments, Moline, IL, UAS).
During the fermentation process, phytate P in the plant-source protein may degrade into inorganic P (Ilyas et al., 1995), whereby the concentration of serum total P may increase in broilers fed fermented SBM (Feng et al., 2007a) and in ducks fed fermented rapeseed meal (Xu et al., 2011).

Since fermentation has been shown to reduce the glucosinolate content of rapeseed meal (Rozan et al., 1996; Adarsh and Amandeep, 2001; Vig et al., 2001), the use of solid-state fermentation may improve the nutritive value of rapeseed meal when it is fed to poultry.
