Wheat Germ Oil
Our wheat germ oil is a fully traceable, unrefined product available directly from the UK manufacturer. It is a rich, dark golden oil with good clarity and a slightly sweet, wheat like smell. The oil is filtered and packed under nitrogen to prevent oxidation. Each batch is tested to ascertain its fatty acid profile, AV and PV, then graded as either food or non-food. It is suitable for further refining and processing.
Wheat germ oil is valued for its high tocopherol content (vitamin E). It is also rich in linoleic acid; an omega-6 fatty acid and alpha linolenic acid; an omega-3 fatty acid, palmitic and oleic fatty acids. It is widely used in dietary supplements, animal husbandry, skin care products and cosmetics.
