Secoisolariciresinol, but also lariciresinol (Abies alba) and 7-hydroxymatairesinol (A. amabilis), could be extracted in large scale from fir knots at pulp and paper mills. The ready availability of large amounts of lignans and oligolignans now enables research to assess their bioactivity and provide the base for applications in medicine and nutrition, or as natural antioxidants and antimicrobial agents in various technical products.
