Freeze extra soaker?

Can I freeze extra soaker? I mixed up a batch of seeds/water as a soaker last week and it ended up being too much for my batch of bread, so I put it in the freezer in a freezer ziplock. Does that compromise the seeds at all? There are sunflower, black sesame, flax, and poppyseed.

thing to do. :) 

I use my freezer all the time for baking ingredients.  The seeds might get slightly softer but I and the bread eaters don't find that a problem.  Hard seeds on the other hand are nasty to bite into and one has to warn people.
