"This product helps to keep my digestive tract in good working order as well as the nutritional input it provides. I mix it in with a number of other ingredients to make a morning shake for breakfast." ~product review by bodhisattva

  • 100% natural defatted wheat germ

  • Cold-processed to retain nutritional integrity

  • Delicious toasty, nutty flavor

While the oils inside the wheat germ contain concentrated fatty acids and other nutrients, they're just a fraction of wheat germ's nourishing components. The rest of the germ contains even more nutrition—fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. To capture these nutrients, we slowly cold-dry the defatted wheat germ through a special heat-free process to create a delicious, fresh-tasting, nutritious powder you can sprinkle on cereals or salads or include in recipes for breads and muffins. Its delicious, toasty and nutty flavor makes a great complement to many dishes. Some people enjoy the taste so much they eat it straight from the spoon!

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by veggie burgers Back in the day of bell bottoms and hair, we would use grain grinders to grind oats, peanuts, sunflowers, oil and egg for binding, onion for flavor, and form into patties. Not the "Veggie burger" of today. ugh, Before going into the frying pan, we coated the patties with wheat germ for a nice dark fry look and great flavor. C'mon you old Hippies, get back to it. Try it as a pan fish coating after your choice of egg dip. I intend to. April 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutritional Energy Booster We started adding the Wheat Germ Powder to our mid-afternoon smoothie to give us some additional energy, and we both feel it does, and is good for us. July 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wheat Germ Review I use this product every morning on my cereal. It has a nice mild taste and is filled w/B vitamins. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice tasting wheat germ. June 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A popular supplement in years past. Easily mixed, tastes good. Good value. June 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product! I use this product for my breakfast - add a tablespoon to my oatmeal (along with vanilla lamond milk, honey, raisins and walnuts), I feel that this is the perfect breakfast for optimal health. I also use the wheat germ instead of bread crumbs in my meatballs and crabcakes. I highly recommend this product. Thanks. March 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it. Add to breakfast shake every morning. my nephew is also using it. I like the taste. March 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Healthy product I am not crazy about how it tastes, but I know for sure it is very healthy. Therefore, I will keep putting it in my serials. April 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wheat Germ This defatted wheat germ is easy to carry when you are traveling as it does not need refrigeration, the selling point for me. Its a little expensive. February 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by must have suppliment I am a huge fan of this product. I mix it in my oatmeal every morning. I feel very healthy. It clearly makes a difference with regularity. In fact, I started packing it for travel, can't go without it, especially if I am forced to eat nutritionally lacking (to say the least) airport food. November 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Refrigeration Needed Because it's defatted, you don't have to keep this in the refrigerator. I find this powder blends very well into smoothies, and the taste is fine -- not too much different than the regular toasted wheat germ I used to buy. It has a little bit of a nutty flavor, but milder than regular wheat germ. The container I received was a screw top lid, which is different than what's shown here; I think the screw top lid is probably better and keeps the wheat germ fresher. I store mine in the refrigerator regardless. July 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Purchase I mix in this powder with my oatmeal in the mornings. Taste is not the best thing ever, but the smell is great! April 26, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good healthy suppliment This product helps to keep my digestive tract in good working order as well as the nutritional input it provides. I mix it in with a number of other ingredients to make a morning shake for breakfast. April 3, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much better than store brands Wheat germ is an important part of my morning smoothies and this defatted powder not only tastes good but makes me feel better about the quality as well as the value of what I am taking. August 14, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and bottle. Love the taste and texture of this wheat germ. Bottle is also great for storage. Comes with a scoop that is handy also. June 3, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good in Smoothies My husband loves this stuff! He's always liked wheat germ, and used to drink it mixed with milk. Now he adds it to his smoothie for lunch, and it adds a big boost of nutrients and fiber, all of which I am thankful for! November 12, 2008
