safety quality polyunsaturated oil oxidation mustard seed Nepal
Project description

Oxidative stability of mustard seed oils will be investigated. In addition, the behaviour of these oils under various oxidative conditions will be studied. This will allow a quality and safety assessment of these poly unsaturated oils as function of their oxidation status, which is currently impossible due to a lack of relevant data.
