A Germ That is Good For You
Want a quick way to add more nutrients and fiber to your breakfast? Sprinkle a couple tablespoons of wheat germ onto your yogurt or cereal.
Wheat germ is the "heart" of the wheat kernel; it is typically separated from wheat that is milled for flour. Wheat germ is rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that may help the immune system. Wheat germ is also a good source of several important minerals, including magnesium, phosphorus and zinc.
