Wheatgerm

Wheatgerm is the edible and most nutritious part of the wheat grain. In fact, wheatgerm contains most of the 23 nutrients found in wheat, it is only really lacks the coarse fibre part of the grain which has been removed during production.

What is wheatgerm?

Wheatgerm is a tiny part of the wheat kernel at less than 3%. The germ is in fact the most reproductive part that germinates and forms wheatgrass shoots and can grow into a plant.

It can be used in a number of ways for the many health benefits associated with it.

Wheat kernels are made up of three unique parts - the bran, the germ and the endosperm. When working together, these three components offer a powerhouse of nutrients. However, when wholegrains are refined the bran and the germ are discarded leaving the endosperm. The endosperm is starchy and lacks the fibre and nutrients that can be found in the other two components. 

Wheatgerm is the centre of the wheat berry and contains the most nutrients out of all three components of the wheat kernel.
