 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Oilseed Rape (Rape, Oil Seed Rape)
  • Latin Name: Brassica napus
  • Family Name: Brassicaceae
Although not toxic, Oilseed Rape is a brassica containing goitrogens, and if overfed could result in the formation of kidney and bladder stones.

Please be aware that two or more goitrogenic plants should not be fed in conjunction with each other, and the sum total of goitrogenic foods should not exceed the guideline for a single plant of 'in moderation' (amber-green) or 'sparingly' (amber-red).  This will ensure that goitrogenic consumption stays within safe limits.
