So, what is wheat germs?

Wheat germs are the nutrient-dense embryo of the wheat kernel. These tiny, golden flakes are a rich source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They have a slightly sweet, nutty flavor that complements a variety of dishes, from smoothies and oatmeal to baked goods and salads. Wheat germs are a popular ingredient in health foods and supplements due to their high concentration of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. They are also a great source of energy and can help boost the immune system, aid digestion, and promote healthy skin and hair.
