    I’m voting to close this question because I can see no way in which it is related to food and/or cooking.

    Letting seeds sprout is done in cooking sometimes in order to get flavor/texture changes, or sometimes to make them edible @LSchoon.

    Does "blending" mean mixing several kinds of seeds together, or does it mean processing the seeds in a blender?

    @ThePhoton the OP tagged it with "blender" and mentioned one type of especially interesting seeds, so I don't think they mean a mixture of different kinds.

1 Answer 1


It´s very likely that the blending will destroy the germ/embryo in the seed and also will separate it from the endosperm which delivers the required energy for the sprouting. So the seed will not sprout anymore when blended. But you could consider to let the seeds sprout first and then blend the sprouts.
