    Terms Defined  

    § 810.601 Definition of flaxseed.  

    Grain that, before the removal of dockage, consists of 50 percent or more of common flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) and not more than 20 percent of other grains for which standards have been established under the United States Grain Standards Act and which, after the removal of dockage, contains 50 percent or more of whole flaxseed.  

    § 810.602 Definition of other terms.  

    (a) Damaged kernels. Kernels and pieces of flaxseed kernels that are badly ground-damaged, badly weather-damaged, diseased, frost-damaged, germ-damaged, heat-damaged, insect-bored, mold-damaged, sprout-damaged, or otherwise materially damaged.

    (b) Dockage. All matter other than flaxseed that can be removed from the original sample by use of an approved device according to procedures prescribed in FGIS instructions. Also, underdeveloped, shriveled, and small pieces of flaxseed kernels removed in properly separating the material other than flaxseed and that cannot be recovered by properly rescreening or recleaning.

    (c) Heat-damaged kernels. Kernels and pieces of flaxseed kernels that are materially discolored and damaged by heat.
