        Sanjana, is Germinated Wheat and Wheat Germ one and the same…If it is yes then it is available at Niligris on Airport Road at Golden Enclave. Also does Germinated Wheat or Wheat Germ help in hair growth?/

        Wheat germ is not the same as germinated wheat. Germination is nothing but sprouting. Wheat germ is the embryo or the inner most part of whole wheat. It is very good for overall health for both hair and skin. You need to eat enough protein too as hair is nothing but protein.

    I have enquired for Wheat germ and wheat germ oil in Nilgiris, Namdhari’s in Bangalore. But none of them have this oil. Nilgiris has a non edible oil form in small quantity which can be used for external application. I have tried searching in google but i did not find any.

    Pls let me know from where i can buy this. I stay in Bangalore

      Raj, I did check with my tricologist and he advised me that Germinated Wheat and Wheat Germ is one, and this is available in Niligris on Airport Road in Golden Enclave.

        Germination is done by soaking while wheat germ is obtained on breaking open the wheat grain and is the inner most part of the wheat grain.

    Is ‘Germinated Wheat Bran’ and ‘Wheat Germ’ the same? I got a box of ‘Bagrry’s Germinated Wheat Bran’ from Big Bazaar. It’s a dry powder which can be mixed with almost anything and had. Is it the right stuff?

    hi sanjana,

    Bagrry’s and Aims in India make wheat bran from germinated wheat. It is more healthy and more nutritious than bran made from milling whole wheat because the phytic acid is neutralized and the aflatoxins are neutralized by the germination of the wheat.

    Germinated wheat bran is not available in the US. I have searched all of the Indian grocery stores online and cannot find any.

    I would like to know a source for 2 or 3 400gm boxes of Bagrry’s Germinated Wheat Bran that can ship to the US.

    Wheat germ contains large quantities of the lectin WGA, which is one of the most widely studied and potentially most damaging of all dietary lectins. Just because wheat germ contains some nutrients doesn’t make it a healthy food.
