Hi Michela

 

The rancidity in linseed develop due to presence of unsaturated acids in it. It is therefore important that packaging of crushed linseed is such to avoid exposure of the crushed linseed to the open at atmosphere.

 

Packing the product under nitrogen is one option but senior management may not be willing to spend money in buying the machine for packing under nitrogen.

 

There are other options  to extend the shelf life of the crushed linseed products. Some of these options are discussed in the  link below.

Please read through this short article it may be helpful.

 

Kind regards

Thanks a lot for the answering. Does the milling should be done also in a refrigereted mixer?
