Wheat germ oil

Wheat germ oil

The germ of the wheat (from where this oil is extracted) can be thought of as the ‘embryo’ of the wheat plant; meaning that this part is meant to nourish the entire wheat plant. During the bread making process, wheat germ is often removed along with the kernel when the grain is ground to white flour. The oil spoils quickly, so it is easier for bread manufacturers to remove it before it goes bad. The bread we buy does not always contain the ‘good stuff’ from the wheat germ, especially if you are buying white bread. As such, the many health benefits of wheat germ cannot enjoyed through wheat-based foods, but through the oil itself.
