Wheat bran versus wheat germ

White bread vs whole wheat (grain): whats healthier

What is the difference between wheat germ and wheat bran, and which is the superior product? Neither is “better,” to be sure. Both are members of the wheat kernal which have the bulk of the nutritional value of wheat. In the processing of common white flour, the wheat germ and bran are separated, leaving the flour devoid of nutrients.
Wheat germ is the embryo of the kernel and is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. 100 calories, 9 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of fat are found in one ounce. It also contains around a third of the recommended daily allowance for thiamin and vitamin E, as well as 10% of the recommended daily allowance for iron and riboflavin. Wheat germ that has been defatted is available, but it has a lower vitamin E content. Wheat germ should be stored in the refrigerator due to its high oil content.
Wheat Bran is the outer shell of the wheat kernal, and each ounce contains a whopping 12 grams of insoluble fiber. One ounce also has 60 calories, 5 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fat, as well as 40% of the daily RDA for both niacin and magnesium and 15% of the RDA for iron.

According to the Harvard School of Public Health, the more whole grains you consume, the lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and digestive problems. A whole grain comprises all three parts of the wheat kernel: endosperm, bran (the outer layer of the kernel), and germ (the grain’s embryo). Wheat germ and wheat bran are available separately. For added protein, mix them into cooked or cold cereal, use them to substitute some of the flour in baked goods, or mix them into ground meat dishes.
A 1-ounce serving of toasted plain wheat germ contains 108 calories, with 3 grams of total fat, including 0.5 grams of saturated fat, providing 27 calories. Toasted wheat bran has 57 calories per serving, 1.5 grams of fat, and 0.2 grams of saturated fat, for a total of 13 fat calories. All are rich in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, with no cholesterol or trans fats.

Grains – what are grains – whole grains – refined grains

Soluble and insoluble fibers are the two types of dietary fiber. Wheat bran contains insoluble fiber, which adds bulk and helps keep the removal mechanism normal. It’s the kind that tends to protect against colon cancer and other gastrointestinal problems. Soluble fiber, such as the kind found in oat bran and soy products, lowers blood cholesterol and absorbs toxins, transporting them out of the body.

Where does flour come from

HOW DO WE PROCESS WHEAT?

How you can use wheat germ

Over the years, we’ve discovered that even people who are “wheat allergic” or “gluten intolerant” can handle our wheat products. I’ve done a lot of research on wheat and how it’s handled over the years, and I’ve come up with some theories as to why “our” wheat products are more tolerable than mass-produced wheat products. Our family grows soft red wheat in Bleckley County, Georgia. We take the wheat berries after harvest and grind them between two stones in our commercial mill. This yields whole-wheat flour that is “virgin.” It’s called “virgin” because it’s completely unprocessed from the berry to the flour. Unlike store-bought whole-wheat flour, this is “real” whole-wheat flour. Allow me to elaborate…
These underappreciated “super seeds” are high in B vitamins, particularly folate (which helps prevent birth defects) and vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that protects cells from damage, promotes healthy hair and skin, and may help prevent cancer. They’re also high in protein and fats that are good for your heart.
