- The Heart of the Wheat Kernel
- A Natural Source of Folic Acid
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.

Toasted Wheat Germ
Toasting Wheat Germ gives it an especially nutty flavor and crunchy texture. Set your oven on 350°F. Pour Wheat Germ in a thin layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Keep a close watch on the Wheat Germ and stir frequently, as it browns easily.

I love this natural and raw wheat germ and add it to oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, smoothies and different recipes. Not only does it make food taste better, but also it helps normalize my cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Wonderful product. Highly recommended.
This really helps me to have a regular bowel movement. Ever since I had about 2 tbspful with my morning drinks, I did not have any constipation problem.

I mainly purchased it to eat it as breakfast, due to its high nutritious profile. Mainly from zinc which has a 111% DV on 100g(WOW right?).
The sky is the limit

We use Bob's Red Mill Natural Raw Wheat Germ every morning in our breakfast cereal. We also use it in our smoothies. I add it to soups, stews, and sauces. I also bake with it for banana bread or any fruit or vegetable type breads. Very healthy product to include as many ways in your diet as possible.
