Apart from cooking, what are the other uses of oilseeds?
Different oilseeds are grown in India, and they can be divided into two categories. Edible oilseeds include groundnut, rapeseed, mustard, sesame, sunflower, and soya bean. These are mostly used as a cooking medium. Non-edible oilseeds include linseed, castor seed, and cottonseed. These are mostly used in paint and varnish, leather industry, and as a raw material in soap-making, cosmetics, and ointments.
