Wheat Germ, Raw, Flake


 Product Description

Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins
Salmon Loaf

SHILOH FARMS Raw Wheat Germ is an excellent, highly concentrated source of essential nutrients, including protein, Vitamin E, healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, B Vitamins, and various minerals. An easy and convenient way of adding nutrition to any diet, it has a rich, almost nutty flavor.

Because the germ is the reproductive part of the seed, it contains the myriad nutrients necessary for germination and growth of new wheat plants. Although it accounts for only about 2%-3% of the whole wheat berry, the germ is the most nutritionally dense part of the kernel.  

Wheat germ and wheat bran are byproducts of the milling of refined wheat products. During the milling process, the bran and germ are removed, leaving only the far less nutrient-rich endosperm. 

To Toast in Oven: Preheat oven to 350 F. Evenly spread ½ cup of wheat germ on a rimmed baking sheet or casserole dish.  Shake pan to spread the germ evenly in a thin layer.  Bake 3-5 minutes, watching for germ to start darkening. For more even toasting, shake pan again and toast for 2 more minutes.

1. Sprinkle toasted wheat germ over cereal, yogurt, or fruit.
2. Eat toasted germ on its own as a cold cereal, topped with fresh fruit or nuts.
3. Replace up to 25% of the flour in your favorite recipes for pancakes, muffins, cookies or even cakes.
4. Use in place of oats in toppings for casseroles or pies.
5. Mix equal parts of wheat germ and cornmeal for a tasty breading for chicken, fish, or pork chops.
6. Add toasted germ to shakes or smoothies.
7. Substitute wheat germ for breadcrumbs in burgers, meatloaf, and meatballs.

Storage: Because of its high natural oil content, wheat germ can become rancid if not properly stored. To maintain freshness, keep your wheat germ in an air-tight container the refrigerator or freezer.

This product was packaged in a facility that also handles wheat, sesame, soy, and tree nuts.

  1. Quality is great, product price is right

    Posted by Richard Eckler on 23rd May 2024

    The contents are consistently fresh and the packaging preserves quality. I am completely satisfies with it. The shipping price, however is in my opinion, exorbitant, causing me to look for other vendors. The shipping makes buying retail look very close in price.

  2. Enjoying the Raw Wheat Germ for decades...

    Posted by Wendel Swan on 6th Nov 2021

    We having been toasting the Shiloh Farms Raw Wheat Germ in a cast iron skillet for decades and enjoy it six days a week on cereal with fruit and yogurt. I'm always looking for something new to experience in food, but I never tire of this wheat germ. In addition, I credit its fiber with resolving some digestive issues I experienced. I should add that raw wheat germ is virtually impossible to find in stores in the DC area; so glad I can order directing from Shiloh Farms!

  3. Great for baking!
