When possible, we use freshly-milled whole grains, these include the grain’s original bran, germ and endosperm.
Bran is the multi-layered outer skin of the grain’s kernel. It contains important antioxidants, B vitamins and ﬁber.
The germ is the embryo which has the potential to sprout into a new plant. It contains many B vitamins, some protein, minerals and healthy fats.Endosperm is the germ’s food supply, which provides essential energy to the young plant so it can send roots down for water and nutrients, and send sprouts up for sunlight’s photosynthesizing power. The endosperm is by far the largest portion of the kernel. It contains starchy carbohydrates, proteins and small amounts of vitamins and minerals.
