Flax seeds are a little more difficult to sprout that other seeds because of their mucilage. When water is added to the seeds, the hard hulls absorb the water and form a "gel-sack" around each seed. These slippery seeds will not sprout in traditional, water-only methods, like other seeds. They must be sprouted on a medium, such as a paper towel, or purchased vermiculite medium. You should sparely spread the seeds on the thoroughly moistened medium.



Grow the flax seeds on the medium in a room temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, with indirect sunlight. They will begin to sprout in 24 hours and in approximately 5 to 14 days, show signs of small green leaves. As the sprouts grow, keep them moist with a spray bottle of water. Check them daily and make sure they do not dry out, which is dependent on the amount of sunlight in the room.



You can use flax seed sprouts in the same way you use other sprouts. Add them to salads, sandwiches or hamburgers. You can store them in the refrigerator for one week. Flax Sprouts are a good source of antioxidants, vitamins A, B, C, E, all the essential amino acids, calcium, magnesium, iron, niacin, phosphorus and potassium.
