The nutty flavor of flaxseeds combined with their large content of omega-3 fatty acids makes them a popular addition to diets. While whole flaxseeds feature a soft crunch, the nutrients in ground seeds are more easily absorbed. 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 sac that surrounds the seed. Because of that gel sac, flax cannot be sprouted in a regular sprouter. It is more a matter of soaking in the proper amount of water than it is sprouting.
