Wheat germ is the tiny little flake found in the heart of a wheat grain. It contains plenty of fibre, protien, and vitamins such as folate, vitamin E, and B vitamins, plus potassium, iron and zinc.
As it is so rich in oil based nutrients do try to keep it fresh and cool as it can go rancid if stored for too long. Wheat germ contains all the goodness that is taken out of white flour! The process of extracting it is quite tricky, as it is not just sifted out like bran. It takes around 25kg of wheat to get 1kg of germ, and it is listed as one of the Mayo Clinics top ten foods for health.
