Toasted Wheat Germ is the “heart” of the wheat kernel. According to Dr.Oz “Wheat germ is the most vitamin- and mineral-rich part of the wheat kernel. In fact, the germ is actually the embryo of the wheat plant. This embryo will eventually nourish the new wheat plant. This is the reason why it has so many wonderful nutrients.”
Our Wheat Germ has many essential vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamin E, folate (folic acid), phosphorous, thiamine, zinc and magnesium. It is a good source of fiber and healthy fats. In addition, there is evidence that wheat germ can help control cholesterol levels and help you to maintain a healthy weight. Just 2 tablespoons of our toasted wheat germ contains 2 grams of fiber.
We recommend our Wheat Germ for individuals who need to get more protein into their diet including vegetarians. Our product contains 4 grams of protein with every 2 tablespoons.

You can easily sneak in some toasted wheat germ into your kids meals and they would never even know it.
