While whole grains are thought to have a range of potential health benefits, thanks to their fiber and‚ healthy‚ fats, refined grains have had the bran and germ stripped away. The edible part of the wheat kernel is comprised of three parts: the wheat bran, the germ and the endosperm. Refined grains have had the bran and the germ removed, meaning they lack dietary fiber, iron and B vitamins. Because whole grains include all three parts, they offer fiber, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and antioxidants. These nutrients work together to offer benefits far beyond the sum of their parts.
White flour is created solely from the starchy endosperm and lacks the fiber of the bran and the delicious nutrients of the germ. However, you‚Äôll want to use this delightful wheat germ, both because it's a great nutritional supplement and because it's so delicious! Add this wheat germ to your favourite bread recipe to add nutrients, flavour and texture.
