Products in Wheat Germs
Over fifty pounds of wheat are needed to get just one pound of precious germ, where wheat germs important nutrients (Vitamin E, thiamine, riboflavin, iron, zinc and magnesium) are concentrated. The tiny germ holds both the secret and the promise of new life. When wheat sprouts (germinates), the new wheat plant emerges from the germ and is nourished by wheat germs abundant supply of nutrients. But wheat germ is extremely perishable after the protective layers of bran are broken in milling. Exposure to oxygen can quickly damage the delicate oil and vitamins in wheat germ. At Fearn our exclusive Naturfresh package was developed to protect wheat germ after milling the same way natures bran layers protect it before milling. We flush pure nitrogen (the inactive part of the air we breathe) through the germ as our special Naturfresh bag is formed around it. Rancidity causing oxygen is kept outside the bag. We hope you enjoy the fresh nutty taste of our Naturfresh Raw Wheat Germ. No solvents used. Some wheat germ is processed with solvents such as hexane to strip the perishable oil and valuable vitamin E from the germ. The resulting defatted wheat germ is added by some companies to their products and labeled as wheat germ. If a product you use is made with wheat germ, but doesnt list the vitamin E content, we suggest that you ask the manufacturer to explain. Made in USA.
