Wheat germ pertains to the small portion of the wheat kernel. This gives the body many essential nutrients such as phosphorus, folate, selenium, manganese, and thiamine. During the process of refining, the part of the kernel that contains the wheat germ is usually stripped away. In order to make the most of the wheat germ benefits, look for products labeled with 100% whole wheat.
