Charles Sturt University PhD student Clare Flakelar is researching whether health-promoting minor compounds in canola oil can be selectively bred... "Processors have stated that the primary reason for using such techniques is to provide consumers with the end product they prefer," Ms Flakelar says... Ms Flakelar says by verifying that the canola variety itself is important in the balance of these compounds, it gives breeders the ability to drive this opportunity...

Some of the new data emerging on the way in which pulses could better balance diets and redress some of the chronic diet-related illnesses, such as obesity and diabetes, has come from a small, GRDC-funded research team at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales... Mr Reynolds says that while he was optimistic the extracts would show some inhibitory effect he was not expecting quite as strong an inhibition: "When I was looking at the cell-culture assays it was observed that a very small proportion of cells were going through the development phase to fat cells.".. The studies were mainly done using compounds from seeds, but Mr Reynolds says results from preliminary work extracting the compounds from hulls (a waste product) are also promising...
