about wheat germ (Triticum vulgare)

wheat germ & benefits
Back to school years, you might remember that our teachers learnt us how to grow legumes. We used to put in a bowl cotton and dropped some water, then threw some of the legumes and these slowly grew up within a few days. The sprouts that we observed were eaten normally and constitute a real health bomb for our body.

The healing properties of the wheat germs have been known for over 5,000 years, reports of their use are found in Chinese medicine and the Indians. Sprouts are a live food, since they continue to grow until the day we decide to consume them. They are rich in fiber, antioxidants and vitamins. Some are soft, others are harder, some have a slight flavor, others are more intense. They can be eaten raw, in sandwiches and salads while the most crisp can be cooked with other vegetables or can be easily added to soups.
