Although Wheat Germ is tiny in size, it plays an important role in the sprouting of wheat for its high nutrient-rich features. However, during wheat processing, wheat germ is often left out for producing white flour, which is really a waste. Besides, the polyunsaturated fatty acid in wheat germ might release “rancid smell” if it was not stored in a proper environment.
With the rapid development of technology, we found that wheat germ contains vital nutrients like Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Phosphorous, Thiamin and Zinc. Apart from this, it contains the essential nutrients for professional athletes and the high proteins which can boost muscle repair. Some people regard wheat germ as a ingredient which can improve cardiovascular function and endurance.
It can be added in waffles, pancakes, oatmeal, sour milk, juice and so on. What’s more, you can also enjoy raw wheat germ.
