the woody part of stalks, obtained as by-products in the primary processing (braking and scutching) of fiber plants, such as flax, hemp, kenaf, dogbane, and ramie, to free the fibers from the stock. Boon, which makes up 65–70 percent of the mass of a bast stalk, consists principally of cellulose (45–58 percent), lignin (21–29 percent), and pentosans (23–26 percent).
