A 2 tablespoon serving of wheat germ provides: Vitamin E - best known for its positive association with heart disease prevention, vitamin E has also been linked with a host of other health benefits including strengthening the immune system. Ironically, some of the best sources of vitamin E are higher-fat foods. Since wheat germ contains only 1.5 grams of fat per serving, adding wheat germ as a source of vitamin E to your diet makes it easier to stay within the recommended fat guidelines. 2 tablespoons wheat germ = 15% of the recommended daily value. Folic acid - also known as folate or folacin. This B vitamin is necessary for heart and blood vessel health, and for proper cell replication. Research has linked it with helping to protect against neural tube birth defects. Current recommendations are that all women of childbearing age consume 400 micrograms of folic acid every day. 2 tablespoons wheat germ = 50 mcg folic acid = 13% of the recommended daily value. Other essential minerals: Provides 10% of the recommended daily value of phosphorus, magnesium and zinc. Dietary fiber: Provides 10% of the recommended daily value.
