Wheatgerm is the reproductive part of cereal grains, and is usually taken out of flour in the refining process. This is a shame because wheatgerm has all kinds of nutrients, including vitamin E, folic acid, thiamin, zinc, magnesium, and essential fatty acids. Not only does it have health benefits, but it tastes great too, giving an extra nutty flavour to breads. You can buy wheatgerm on its own from health shops such as The Health Zone and Holland & Barrett. Based on the brands I used, each slice of bread is about 63 calories.
