What is VIOGERM®?

Wheat germ is the most valuable part of wheat. The high content of unsaturated fatty acids in wheat germ limits its shelf life to a few days. Therefore, the wheat germ is removed during flour production. HOCHDORF Nutrifood Ltd. has developed a gentle process to stabilize the wheat germ as VIOGERM®, preserving the richness of protein, dietary fibre, minerals and vitamins.
