ART-FTIR spectroscopy, cold pressed oils, fat, fatty acids, fertiliser, oxidative stability


The aim of the study was to determine whether,  and to what the type of fertilisation employed can affect the quality of the harvested spring rape and the oil extracted therefrom through virgin oil pressing. The article presents the results of research conducted with the use of ATR-FTIR  absorption spectroscopy of selected cold  pressed vegetable oils. The study included three types of rapeseed oil from spring plants grown with traditional  NPK mixture fertilisation and digestate. The oxidative stability of the pressed oil was also determined and soil parameters such as: content of absorbable nutrients and acidity in the experimental plots.
