Effect of Microwave Treatment on Linseed Oil Quality

People often say that the grain is to raise, but do not know that the ancients said there is “hemp” in the grain.Hemp includes oil seeds such as flaxseed and sesame seed.In recent years,the dietary habits of modern people have changed, absorbing too much saturated fatty acid, affecting the normal operation of cells, thus causing three degenerative diseases: cardiovascular disease, cancer disease, diabetes.And flaxseed no cholesterol, is rich in fibre and Ω 3 fatty acids, Ω 3 fatty acids contain nutrients can help prevent heart disease and other chronic diseases.


The baking, puffing, drying and sterilization of whole grain products can be done by microwave curing and sterilization equipment of flaxseed.

Mechanism of microwave curing and sterilization equipment for flaxseed:

Using the heated material itself as the heating body, the baking function of flaxseed microwave curing equipment can instantly penetrate into the inside of the material and heat both inside and outside of the material.

There is no need for the process of heat conduction, so the temperature rises quickly and greatly reduces the heating time, which is usually 1/4 of that of the conventional method.Baking,like other food processing,is a complex physicochemical system that must occur in an orderly fashion and at the right time/temperature.

The fastest heating of microwave curing sterilizing equipment can result in cracking, overexpansion or explosion of baked products.Microwave heating speed is fast, the gas (air) temperature inside the material increases greatly, because the mass transfer speed is slow, the heated gas is located in the high pressure state, and there is a tendency of expansion, when the pressure reaches a certain level, the material will expand.

Features of microwave curing and sterilization equipment for flaxseed:

1.Heat faster:Flaxseed microwave drying and sterilization equipment is to make the heated object itself into a heating body, without heat conduction process.Therefore, although it is a material with weak thermal conductivity, it can reach the heating temperature in a very short time.

2.Uniform heating:Regardless of the shape of each part of the object, flaxseed drying sterilization equipment heating can make the object together with the uniform penetration of electromagnetic waves and form heat energy.So the symmetry of heating inside and outside is basically the same.

3.Energy-saving and efficient:In the heating process of flaxseed ripening sterilizer, there is basically no other loss except the heating material.Therefore, high thermal efficiency, environmental protection and energy saving.

4.Anti-enzyme, sterilizing and fresh-keeping:Microwave sterilization equipment heating has thermal effect and biological effect, can sterilize at a lower temperature and anti-enzyme preservation.Because of faster heating and shorter time, it can maximize the storage of the activity of materials and the gloss and nutritional value of the original materials.

5.Processes can build automated controls:As long as the power of microwave curing sterilization equipment is controlled, it can achieve instant heating and stop, without thermal inertia.The programmable automatic control of heating process and heating process standard can be realized by using man – machine interface and PLC.

6.Benefits of low temperature baking:It removes moisture effectively, prevents excessive damage to plant proteins and other nutrients, and has a distinctive taste.

The second feature of microwave curing and sterilization equipment for flaxseed:

1.It can be thoroughly sterilized without preservative,long-term storage, no mildew, no loss of nutrients, ensure the original color, aroma, taste.

2.Microwave sterilization is 50% less time than other machines and 40% less electricity than other electrical equipment.

3.No chemical waste, no environmental pollution, in line with the national regulations on environmental protection.

4.Microwave can also accelerate the maturation of liquor and reduce the storage time for 3-6 months.

5.Microwave sterilization machine has small size, small area, high production and processing speed, practical operation is convenient,which is the ideal sterilization equipment at this stage.

Those are the benefits of flax seed treatment by microwave technology.Flax seed also has many benefits.If we use it, we have to microwave the flax seed first.Flax seed should not be eaten raw.The suitable microwave treatment conditions of flax seed sterilizer are beneficial to the extraction of flavonoids, polyphenols, carotenoids, sterols and other nutrients in flax seed oil.I hope you can use flax seed correctly.
