All about flax

Properties of Flaxseed

In 100 g of flaxseed there are about 534 kcal, about 18 g of proteins, 42 g of fats and almost 29 g of carbohydrates. In addition to the high energy value, flaxseed can contain a large amount of vitamins A, B1, E and F. The product also contains omega-3 fatty acids and natural fiber. Flax seeds are high in phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper and other minerals. Grains contain natural phytoestrogens and antioxidants.

Benefits and harms of flaxseed

Flaxseed's high calorie content and rich chemical Zusacomposition of the product make it extremely beneficial for humans. By adding seeds to the daily menu, you can cleanse the body of accumulated toxins and even prevent the development of malignant tumors. Flaxseeds contain substances that lower blood cholesterol levels and have a positive effect on the condition of blood vessel walls. The product is very useful for the kidneys.

Regular consumption of grains allows you to normalize digestion and get rid of chronic constipation. Flaxseed is an effective preventative for Alzheimer's and improves memory and brain function. The product contains substances that increase the rate of transmission of nerve impulses and improve mood.

Flax seeds are also useful for the female body. They are useful for strengthening nails and improving the appearance of hair. Grains have a positive effect on the condition of the skin, which can be consumed during menopause, as they reduce the risk of breast cancer.

The calorie content of flaxseed is high enough, so it is not recommended to enter it into the diet in large quantities. The permissible daily portion of the product is up to 2 tablespoons. Whole flaxseeds are not digested in the stomach. Before use, they must be ground in a mortar or blender.


The main root is rather short, whitish, with a small number of larger primary branches, but with numerous thin roots.

The trunk is 60-120 (150) centimeters high, mostly erect and straight, thin, cylindrical, often simple, branching only in the upper part (in the inflorescence), pale green, with a faint waxy layer.

Leaves very numerous, relatively densely spirally arranged, 2-3 in. long, 3-4 in. wide, linear or linear-lanceolate, the largest lanceolate, acute at apex, sessile, relatively faint wax plaque, smooth at margin, with three veins.

The inflorescence is a lax gyrus, sometimes descending into a curl with lanceolate bracts. The flowers are relatively few, mostly medium-sized or rather small, 1,5-2,4 centimeters in diameter, on rather long stalks, exceeding the length of the cup, thickened at the tips and articulated below the thickening. Sepals 5-6 millimeters long, herbaceous, ovate or ovate-lanceolate to oblong-ovate, acute or short priostrennnye at the tip, with a sharp keel, with 2-5 but usually three-veined, the inner ones somewhat broader at the apex rough at the edge. Petals are 12 to 15 millimeters long, wedge-ovate, slightly rounded at the top or beveled притупленные, entire or slightly crenate, smooth or slightly wavy, blue or blue with darker veins, less often white, pink or reddish-purple, narrowed downwards in white, yellow nail at base, caducous. Stamens with linear white filaments dark blue at the apex; Anthers oblong, mostly blue, rarely yellow or orange. ovary ovate, green; Column with wedge-shaped, linear stigmas, dark blue to violet. Blooms from June to July.

The fruit is a box 6-8 millimeters long, 5,7-6,8 millimeters in diameter, oblate globose or globular ovate, with a cup remaining on it and a small spike at the top, yellowish mostly without anthocyanin tint, only occasionally lightly colored before ripening, unstructured; false partitions are bare or less often with cilia. Seeds are usually under 10, sometimes less, 3,3-5 millimeters long, ovate or oblong-elliptical, somewhat uneven, much flattened, rounded at base, insular on top, light brown to dark brown, occasionally greenish yellow, entire smooth, shiny.

Technology for growing flaxseed

requirements in the soil

When choosing areas for sowing flax, take into account grain size distribution, soil pH and the safety of your mineral elements nutrition. When sowing oilseed flax on soils with a pH greater than 6,0, flax is affected by calcium chloride. Do not plant oilseeds on fields with steep slopes with large boulders on the soil surface.

SOD-Podsol suitable for growing flax – (light, medium, sandy loam and temporarily superfluous moistened soils with a pH of 5,0-6,0, secured mobile phosphorus (100-200 mg/kg soil) , potassium (100-200 mg/kg), boron (0,30,7 mg/kg) and zinc (3-5 mg/kg).


The best precursors for oilseeds are Grain crop. Do not put oilseeds after crops containing organic fertilizers: potatoes, Corn, root vegetables, clover and perennial grasses, since vegetation caused by excess nitrogen in the soil may be delayed and sowing will be laid. You can return flax to the old field no earlier than in 7-8 years. Failure to meet this deadline and sowing linseed oil monoculture in the first year will reduce the harvest by 15%, and by 40-50% in the second year.


After cleaning the predecessor, the straw is cleaned. After the regrowth of couch grass 15-20 cm and the formation of sowthistle species processing herbicides in a dose of 3-4 liters/hectare and when contaminating species of wormwood — 5-6 liters/hectare. The consumption of the working solution is 200 liters/hectare. The optimal air temperature for the effective action of drugs is 15-25°C (at 5°C the effect of drugs slows down sharply). Rain after 4-6 hours after treatment reduces the effectiveness of the drugs. After 15-20 days after treatment, plowing into the depth of the arable layer is carried out. Optimum terms for plowing: the third decade of August is the end of September.

Spring sowing of flax is unacceptable.

In the flaxseed crop rotation, once every five to six years, it is recommended to carry out continuous subsoil draining to a depth of 35-40 cm after the main plowing.

In the spring, the first cultivation is carried out at a depth of 5-7 cm. The second cultivation is carried out after loosening mineral fertilizers with the installation at a depth of 10-12 cm. The depth must be identical over the entire width of the device. After the passage of the cultivator, the field surface must be flat, after the completion of cultivation, the swing strips are processed.

Preparing the seeds for sowing

Preparation of seeds begins in autumn and winter. They are cleaned of weeds, brought to the sowing standard of germination and purity. No later than two weeks before sowing, the seeds are soaked in chemical preparations with the addition of trace elements and a growth regulator.


For sowing, conditioned seeds are used not lower than III reproduction. The optimal sowing time of flax is when the soil is warmed up to 7-8 °C at a depth of 10 cm, the moisture of the upper layer is 50-60% of the full moisture capacity.

Young plants tolerate short-term frosts to -4 °C, seeds in the ground to 12 °C, sprouts to -5 °C, green cotyledons to -3 °C.

Optimum seed rates (millions of seeds/hectare): – for commodity seed – 8-10; for seed - Uteruselite - 6, Superelite - 6-8.

Sowing depth: on medium loam -1-2 cm, on light loam and loamy soils - 2-3 cm. The method of sowing is ordinary (the width of the row spacing is 7,5–15 cm). When forming a dense soil crust on medium-sized loamy soils during germination of flaxseed, it is necessary to carry out the shaking in a track perpendicular to the direction of the rows.

Non-root fertilizing with microfertilizers is carried out when growing flax on soils of the 1 group of micronutrient supply.

maintenance work

Agricultural measures - early plowing, rotation of crops, cleaning of seeds - do not provide complete weed kill. Dry weeding of flaxseed is mandatory.

The use of chemical preparations against weeds depends on their typeusaclogging and the degree of constipation. The need for herbicide treatment is determined on each particular field.

During the growing season, the use of pesticides and fertilizers is necessary. Conditions for chemical treatments:

– air temperature: 15-24 °C (with a daily temperature above 25 °C, the treatment is carried out only in the morning or in the evening);
– wind speed – less than 4 m/s.

In case of precipitation, the treatment should be repeated. The dose of herbicide is set taking into account the degree of influence of the previous treatment. If the most sensitive plants of wild radish and other cruciferous vegetables do not have a herbicidal effect (bending, twisting the leaves and stems), then the full dose is used. In the presence of a weak herbicidal effect with repeated treatment, the dose is reduced by 20-40%.

During the growing season, the use of fungicides and insecticides on flaxseed is carried out in accordance with the State Register of Plant Protection Products (Pesticides) and Fertilizers.

Cleaning Flax

Harvesting of oilseeds is carried out at the stage of full seed maturity by grain harvesting. The harvesters must be prepared for harvesting oil flax according to the technical requirements of each model. Seed moisture should be below 15% when harvested. To accelerate seed maturation, reduce disease infection and increase the productivity of combines and drying plants, it is advisable to dry flaxseed.

Drying and cleaning seeds

After filling the transport container, the seeds should be immediately sent to the drying sites. Flaxseed has a high fluidity, so the sides of vehicles must be sealed and covered with a tarpaulin. Drying of the seeds is carried out at a temperature not higher than 40 °C. After drying, the seeds should be blown with atmospheric air for 1,0-1,5 hours.

Moisture of the dried seeds — 7-8%. The control of the temperature during the drying of the seeds is carried out by sampling every 1,5 hours. After drying, the seeds are cleaned on seed cleaning machines. Difficult-to-separate seeds and grains of weed plants are isolated on electromagnetic machines.

Linen products

linseed oil

Flaxseed oil is a product of the processing of flaxseed. Depending on the manufacturing technique, there are different types:

– Unrefined Flaxseed Oil – free from mechanical impurities caused by settling, filtering or centrifuging. Retains a rich aroma, with prolonged storage it spoils and gives a precipitate. It is considered the most useful.
– Hydrated Flaxseed Oil – is treated with water to remove phosphatides that leave residues in the oil. Doesn't leave dirt, retains a rich flavor.
– Refined Flaxseed Oil – is mechanically and chemically treated (refined) with alkali that neutralizes free fatty acids. It has no precipitation, is stable in storage, almost does not smell.

Cooking oil is made using a cold-pressed method. In this pressing, the peeled and crushed seeds are not heated. Cold-pressed oil retains most of the beneficial components of the feedstock.

During hot pressing, the raw material is crushed and heated to 120 degrees. Useful substances in such a product are less.

During extraction, the oil is extracted from crushed seeds using special solvents. Then, with the help of distillers, solvents are removed from it. It is considered the least useful due to the large amount of "chemistry" used in its manufacture.

The Zusacomposition of linseed oil includes omega-3, omega-6, omega-9, stearin, myristic and palmitic saturated fatty acids, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B4, B6, B9, E (choline), K, F and potassium, Phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, phytosterols, squalene, tioproline, lecithin, beta-carotene.

The use of the product helps reduce cholesterol, the risk of diabetes, oncology, cardiovascular diseases.
The oil also contains antioxidants that block the effects of free radicals on all body cells.


The trust is formed in the processing of flax in a way — biological or physico-chemical. The biological (body or cold water lice) is based on the action of enzymes of microorganisms that destroy pectin substances and release fibrous bundles of cover tissues. The process takes from a few days to several weeks.

The process of converting flax straw into a trust in an express way takes only 25 minutes. Mechanically, by crumpling, fluttering, scraping, the trust is made into fiber for spinning and bonfires.


The stems of the flax are destroyed in the crumpling and trembling, small straws are separated from them - the woody particles about 5 mm in size - of the fire. Flax machines are used to process the stems - a combination of serrated and smooth wooden rollers. Fire flax is up to 70% of the mass of the stalk.


After drying out the boxes with seeds, straw remains on the fields. It complicates tillage, badly decomposes, interferes with the next sowing.

With the help of a disintegrator, a same type of fiber is obtained, then it is decosted and subjected to bilateral fluttering.
The resulting raw material is used in the manufacture of textiles, composite materials, medical products (compression stockings, cotton wool, napkins).

Flaxseed grist

With a degree of conventionality, flaxseed can also be a waste - for those flax farms where they do not produce flaxseed oil.

And where the oil is pressed from flaxseed, what remains is a grist (a by-product of tartaring—the release of oil under the influence of a soluble substance).

There is more residual fat in the cake, and protein content is the top priority with shred. Crumbly flakes are often converted into granules in the last production cycle to facilitate packaging and transport of the scrap.

In addition to traditional linen processing products such as textiles and linseed oil, the variety of linen qualities and modern technologies enable by-products to be used efficiently.

are flax waste biological, so there are enough possibilities to use them as usable secondary raw material:

– in agriculture – for the production of organic fertilizers, mulch, protein-rich animal feed, as a substrate for growing oyster mushrooms;
– in the construction industry – in the manufacture of pressed panels and finishing materials (skirting boards, siding boards, slopes);
in light industry – for the production of sackcloth, tarpaulins, ropes, twine, linen fabric, mattress fillings, deck chairs, upholstered furniture, high-quality paper, cardboard, packaging materials;
- around Bioenergy – for use as organic fuel in pressed pellets and fuel briquettes.

As a natural fiber material, flax is used as a raw material for the production of composite materials. Linen processing products are added to the concrete for structures that operate outdoors. The campfire is used as a sorbent in cleaning up spills of petroleum products.

Ford, Renault, Fiat factories produce composite bumpers with natural fibrous materials. According to Mercedes-Benz, 5 kg of natural fibers are used in the manufacture of each car - to strengthen interior panels, as a substitute for asbestos in brake and clutch covers.

This makes the car lighter. In terms of performance are Biocomposites are superior to fiberglass or synthetic materials and have less negative environmental impact when recycled.

Interesting facts

The flax harvest in Kazakhstan reached about 2021 million hectares in 1,5

The area under flax in Kazakhstan reached a record level of over 2021 million hectares in 1,5, said Grain Union expert Yevgeny Karabanov. Interfax writes about it.

"In 2021, in the current marketing season, the flax acreage reached a record level of more than 1,5 million hectares, according to the National Bureau of Statistics," Karabanov said at the KazakhOilseed Summit: Online Edition conference dedicated to the oilseed market. According to him, Kazakhstan is one of the leading exporters of linseed and linseed oil.

“There is a stable trend of maintaining and increasing the acreage, which is mainly due to the fact that the cost of flaxseed has increased by almost 1,8 times compared to last year. Today flax is one of the most productive crops in Kazakhstan,” noted Evgeny Karabanov.

Despite the fact that the export of flax in the 2019-2020 season was at the level of the 2018-2019 season, according to the speaker, there was a redistribution within the structure. China was one of the largest importers last season. In total, flax exports from Kazakhstan to China for the 2019-2020 marketing year amounted to 104,3 thousand tons.

“The traditional importers – that is Belgium, Poland – saw a decline. Previously, in the 2018-2019 season, they occupied 68% in the structure, in the 2019-2020 season, these two countries occupied 54% and China 19 %”, he added.In the case of sunflower seeds, according to Karabanov, there was a slight decrease in the area sown.

“In the current season, according to the National Statistics Office – 780.000 hectares of sown area, according to estimates from the regional agricultural offices – almost 900.000 hectares have been sown. Our estimate is closer to the national statistics,” the expert explained.

At the same time, he notes a significant reduction in the rapeseed area – 127,4 thousand hectares compared to 300,2 thousand hectares in the 2019-2020 marketing year. “On the one hand, this is because many farmers were disappointed with the rapeseed yield and the pest problems last year. Many did not manage to save their crops,” said Yevgeny Karabanov.
