About

Because flax is mucilaginous it doesn't sprout like most sprouts. It doesn't grow long roots - or any roots in most cases. This is because once it meets water it forms a gel sack which surrounds the seed. Because of that gel sack flax can not be sprouted in a regular sprouter. Really it is more a matter of soaking in the proper amount of water than it is sprouting. It's very simple - it's just unique. To learn what mucilaginous really means; take one Flax seed and put a a few good drops of water on it. Wait for 30 minutes and try to pick the seed up =:-}
That's mucilaginous! If you have a magnifying glass - examine the seed to see one of the wonders of nature.

Something you need to understand about sprouts: A seed that has soaked up its fill of water has gone from dormant to alive. That is the single biggest nutritional gain the seed/sprout will go through. The roots are not necessary. We're just used to seeing them and so we want to. Let that go and enjoy flax sprouts - or as we might call them flax soaks.
