What am I?

I am extremely nutritious. I can be eaten whole, pressed into edible oil like soybeans, or ground into flour for baking. I am one of the best sources of vegetable protein. I contain a full complement of essential amino acids, essential fatty-acids (EFA'S), and have been shown to lower blood cholesterol and dissolve plaque in coronary arteries.
I am perfectly suited for hair and skin care. My nutritional value, combined with my moisturizing and replenishing EFA's, make me one of the best vegetable body care foundations and I am an excellent source of GLA's.
My paper is naturally acid-free. My cellulose level is almost 3x that of wood, so I make a superior paper and yield 4x as much pulp per acre as trees. My paper process also utilizes less energy and fewer chemicals than tree paper processing and doesn't create the harmful dioxins, chloroform, or any of the other 2,000 chlorinated organic compounds.

So, ...what am I?

  • here's a few more hints



    My seeds have provided a combustible fuel oil throughout human history. More importantly, though, the same high cellulose level that makes me ideal for paper also makes me perfect for ethanol fuel production. Ethanol is the cleanest-burning liquid bio-alternative to gasoline. In one test, an unleaded gasoline automobile engine produced a thick, black carbon residue in its exhaust, while the tailpipe of a modified ethanol engine tested for the same 3,500 miles remained pristine and residue-free.
