What is wheat germ? Wheat germ is part of a wheat kernel and is responsible for helping the plant reproduce and spawn new wheat. It is usually removed from processed wheat products but it is a very nutritional part of whole grain wheat. Wheat germ has excellent nutritional value as a food supplement. It’s a great source of vegetable proteins, along with fiber and healthy fats. It’s also a good source of magnesium, zinc, thiamin, folate, potassium, and phosphorus.
