Wheat Germ -CONVENTIONAL Product
Wheat germ is the embryo of the seed that would cause it to germinate. It is separated in the normal commercial milling process where the germ passed through rollers to flatten the particles. The product may contain a small portion of bran. This product is non-GMO.
Wheat germ is part of a wheat kernel and is responsible for helping the plant reproduce and spawn new wheat. Although it’s removed from most processed wheat products, it is a major nutritional component of whole grain wheat. Wheat germ, along with the husk, is removed from refined wheat products — like those that use white flour — so that they can be stored for longer.
Wheat germ is added to some granolas, cereals, and cornbread, and it’s also available raw. It is a popular topping for fruit pies, yogurt, ice cream, and hot or cold cereal. It can be a healthier alternative to breadcrumbs in meatballs, meatloaf, and breading for meats.
It can be used as a food additive or as a nutritional supplement for smoother movements.
