Recipe Directions

Use as a topping for salads, yogurt, ice cream, casseroles, and more.

Nutrition Nibble

Wheat Germ contains both zinc and antioxidants to help fight infection, in addition to Vitamin B. Hate the taste? Then switch out part of the flour in a recipe to sneak in a little wheat germ. For example, if 1-cup of flour is called for, make 1/8th cup of it wheat germ. A little goes a long way.
