The flattening of the flaxseed cracks the hulls without deeply affecting the cellular structure. This enables a progressive liberation of the oil in the digestive tract. The flattening does not affect the physical and chemical characteristics of the mucilage present in the flaxseed.

Specific advantages

  • Excellent regulation of the gastrointestinal functions of the animals in general, thanks to the 5 to 5,3% of mucilage content and protection of the oils and the polyunsaturated acids from oxidation and hydrogenation.
  • Highly energetic foodstuff (see nutritive values).
  • High content in polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3, these are essential for the animal healthiness and are able to modify the composition of meat and milk in order to influence the consumer healthiness.
  • Antioxidants content:
    • flaxseed is containing natural antioxidants (the flattening of the seeds does not destroy these antioxidants);
    • SOCODE adds important dosages of liquid antioxidant just after the flattening process (1 to 2kg/T offering a stability from 4 to more than 6 months).
