Great for making your own sprouted flax crackers or grow a beautiful microgreen with a strong flavour!

  • Days to Sprout: 2-3 Days
  • Soak Time: NO SOAK
  • Storage: Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last even longer!

Soilless Method Gelatinous Seeds 

No Soak, mist only. Day 1

Fit a heavy duty unbleached paper towel, coffee filter, or Baby Blanket to your sprouter of choice- on a plate, porous surface like a terracotta pot bottom or tray with grid holes in the bottom of it.

Mist paper towel so the seed will stick to the surface when you spread them.

Sprinkle the seed in one thin layer so after misted and taken up the water, the seeds will be one seed beside the other. Use spoon or other tool to separate clumps.

Mist seed on the towel 2x in the first hour or two to be sure it has started to hydrate. Pour off pooled water.

Place sprouter in a vented plastic bag and return it after every rinse.

Rinse/mist twice daily. 

Once the seed is stuck to the paper mist more aggressively. Use enough water to prevent roots from browning or water from a slow-moving tap.

Drain off any excess water with each rinse.  Tap the sprouter to release water from the holes.  Drain off excess water on your plate.

Grow & Harvest

By day 3 the sprouts have raised above the towel and start to free themselves from the towel.  At this time, you can decide to take the towel out or let the roots grow into the towel in a day or two.  If you choose to scrape the sprouts off the towel carefully water under the tap gently until you harvest on day 5, 6 or 7.  The gelatinous nature of the hulls, make them susceptible to mold so eat the sprouts soon after harvest.

If you chose to leave the sprouts to grow into the towel, water until the new shoots are tall enough to cut with scissors above the roots- probably day 7 to 9.

Cress is the only gelatinous seed you will be able to put in a bowl of water and float some of the hulls off of if you want to.  There is lots of fiber in the hulls and there are advantages to eating the whole sprout.

Enjoy!

    Great Sprouting Seeds, I ordered the two pound bags, we like to sprout in Large Glass jars, Mumms taste fresh and are a great Organic Seed Supplier.

  2. Sdodds

    I sprout the flax in the Spring Salad mix or the Sandwich Booster mix by adding a little in after soaking the original seeds. Really nice in salads

  3. Paul LeMay

    I have been sprouting seeds for many years. This is the first time I have tried flax seeds. Growing very well. Will use them in a salad and possibly will make veggie flax crackers from juicing pulp.

  4. MattB

    I find these flaxseeds to be far fresher than the ones I get in the grocery store. And the free shipping makes it far more affordable.

  5. Janie

    I have been ordering flax seed amongst other items from Mumm’s for more than a decade and the service and quality of everything I’ve ever purchased through them has been superb!
