• The bran provides fiber, protein and vitamins that are vital in maintaining a healthy digestive system.
• The germ provides B vitamins and fatty acids that are necessary for healthy brain function. The endosperm contains
starches, carbohydrates, protein, iron and B vitamins.
• Stoneground milling, which is done in a cool and gentle way, retains these vitamins and nutrients.
As stoneground milling avoids overheating & dehydration, retaining nutrients and the wheat germ.
