Wheat Germ is the heart of the wheat berry. It has a delicious nutty flavor, and is packed with nutrition. For a scant 60 calories and one and a half grams of unsaturated fat, a two tablespoon serving will provide two grams of dietary fiber, thirteen percent of recommended daily value of folic acid, ten percent of recommended daily value of phosphorus, magnesium and zinc, and fifteen percent of your vitamin E and thiamin requirements. It is a cholesterol and sodium free food, and its fat is unsaturated. You can use Wheat Germ to replace up to one half cup of flour when baking cookies, muffins and breads. Use it as a topping for fruit pies, fruit salads, yogurt and ice cream, or as a nutritious breading for chicken or fish and as filler for meatballs and meatloaf.

Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.

Dear Friends, we would like to share important information about Wheat Germ with you.

A Tablespoon serving of Wheat Germ provides:

Vitamin E - Best known for its positive association with heart disease prevention, vitamin E has also been linked with a host of other healthy benefits including strengthening the immune system. Ironically, some of the best sources of vitamin E are higher-fat foods. Since Wheat Germ contains only 1.5 grams of fat per serving, adding wheat germ as a source of vitamin E to your diet makes it easier to stay within the recommended fat guidelines.

2 Tablespoons Wheat Germ = 15% of the recommended Daily Value

Folic Acid - Also known as folate or folacin. This B vitamin is necessary for heart and blood vessel health, and for proper cell replication. Research has linked it with helping to protect against neural tube birth defects. Current recommendations are that all women of childbearing age consume 400 micrograms of folic acid every day.

2 Tablespoons Wheat Germ = 50 mcg folic acid = 13% of the recommended Daily Value

Other Essential Minerals

Provides 10% of the recommended Daily Value of Phosphorus, Magnesium and Zinc.

Dietary Fiber

Provides 10% of the recommended Daily Value.

Mostly Wheat Bran

Posted by pickier-than-thou on Apr 16, 2010

No complaints about freshness but it's like 60% wheat bran and 40% wheat germ - I've seen better.

RAW WHEAT GERM

Posted by Reviewer1400377 on Apr 03, 2009

I use the wheat germ oil and raw wheat germ in a cocktail that's supposed to enhance your hair, skin and nails. Shipping was a great turnaround (it came a few days later). Also these two products have done miracles for my skin. It's clearer and more radiant. Has a glow!
