It appears that, just like sunflower seed, tobacco seed contains an edible oil that can be extracted and used commercially. And it's linoleic oil, the good-for-your-heart kind of oil.

My problem is I can hardly see the seed. I don't think I will ever find the drain plug. Actually and seriously I was just looking into pressing seed for there oil the other day. Never did get far enough to really understand how it is done. but it was interesting. I will revisit it someday soon. Think of all the plants that would have to grow sub standard tobacco to produce all that seed though. Could be worse for your heart when that is taken into account. :wink:
