Wheat germ

Found at the center of a grain of wheat is the wheat germ (the part of the seed that’s responsible for the development and growth of the new plant-sprouts). The germ is a highly concentrated source of nutrients, including niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin E, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron and zinc. The germ also contains protein, fiber and some fat. (FYI Wheat germ is found in Cream of Wheat)
