    Bioprocessing of Practical Components from Oil-Rich Seed
    Author(s): Shengde Zhou*

    Flaxseeds are nutritious oilseeds rich in lignans, lipids, proteins, fibre, carbohydrates, and micronutrients. Flaxseeds have an established reputation as a dietary source of high value functional ingredients due to their established high nutritional profile. These essential constituents in flaxseeds can be made bioavailable for various applications such as nutraceuticals, cosmetics, and the food industry by using various bioprocessing techniques. Nonetheless, flaxseeds contain high levels of phytotoxic compounds such as linatine, phytic acids, protease inhibitors, and cyanogenic glycosides, despite their food and health applications. According to epidemiological studies, consuming these compounds can result in poor bioavailability of essential nutrients and/or health complications. As a result, these components must be removed or rendered inactive to physiological.. Read More»
