Wheatgerm is one of the main by-products of the wheat milling industry, and is generally used for animal feed or oil production. With wheatgerm containing anywhere up to 14% oil, extraction of this oil via pressing and solvent extraction has had some success. The resulting oil is rich in the essential omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin E, thus making it a speciality oil. The resulting stabilised de-fatted wheatgerm has an increased protein content enabling it to be a very viable ingredient within the bakery and cereal industry. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

'Omega-6 vegetable oils' are a small but important group of vegetable oils used widely in the food, neutraceutical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for their linoleic acid (18:2 n-6) and more importantly gamma linolenic acid (18:3 n-6) content. These omega-6 fatty acids have numerous health benefits recognized worldwide. With linoleic acid being readily available from many dietary sources, one wonders why there is a need to extract the oil from speciality oilseeds, however those that suffer with many of the conditions that omega-6 fatty acids are said to be beneficial for are frequently advised to take extra supplements of these fatty acids. Due to their wide use as a nutraceutical, omega-6 fatty acids are in high demand, causing a niche market for extraction of these oils from speciality seeds. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
