*Wheat germ contains gluten and should not be introduced to your baby until he is AT LEAST 6 months of age. Before giving your baby any foods containing either wheat or gluten, please check with your doctor.
Wheat germ is the smallest, most nutritious part of a wheat grain. A whole wheat grain is composed of four parts
the husk (which is the outer layer)
the bran (a nutritious, high fibre part of the grain)
the endosperm (this is the main part of the grain and is used in processed grain foods)
the germ (the smallest part, yet one of the most nutritionally valuable products available)
Fortunately, wheat germ is becoming more widely available and now appears on the shelves of many supermarkets. If your local supermarket doesn't stock it, then you should be able to find it at most natural food and health stores.
Wheat germ is sold in two forms - fresh and toasted. Fresh is best but, typically, harder to find! Fresh wheat germ should be placed in the refrigerator as soon as you buy it, whereas toasted wheat germ only needs refrigerating once it's been opened.
