Wheat germ - super food
Crumbs are pleased to announce the first company in the world to put back Wheat Germ in all our already healthy products.
Many have asked “what is Wheat Germ? “ “Is it a bacteria in wheat?” Crumbs have provided some inside facts of wheat germ.
Wheat germ is one of the most nutritional products available. In fact, wheat germ contains 23 nutrients, and has more nutrients per gram than any other vegetable or grain known.
Wheat Germ is a part of the wheat kernel. The germ is only a very small part of the kernel, approximately 2 ½ percent in total. The word germ does not have anything to do with bacteria. It simply refers to germination. The germ is the reproductive part that germinates and forms the wheat grass, it is the embryo of the seed.
Wheat germ is very high in protein. It contains around 28 percent protein and has more protein than can be found in most meat products. The human body needs protein in order to repair tissue damage and to help minerals and nutrients reach our cells.
The amount of nutrients that are contained within wheat germ seems endless. It contains more potassium and iron than any other food source. Also found in great quantities are riboflavin, calcium, zinc magnesium and vitamins A, B1 and B3. Vitamins B1 and 3 are very important to maintain energy levels and maintain healthy muscles, organs, hair and skin.
Another important vitamin found in wheat germ is vitamin E. Vitamin E is a very important antioxidant. It is helpful in preventing the body|s aging process and also to prevent heart disease. Vitamin E also helps to prevent blood clots and is needed to strengthen the body’s immune system.
Although the nutrient-rich embryo is removed during the processing of whole wheat grains to white flour. At Crumbs we have taken the effort to put it back into all our flour base products.
