The flattened Wheat Germ is then usually toasted to extend its storage life (the toasting helps prevent it from going rancid.) Raw food fans find that it can be very difficult to find untoasted (aka unstabilised) wheat germ. If you can, you may find that in its processing it has actually been heated slightly, to about 36 to 40 C, but that is a low enough temperature that it can still qualify as a raw food. The storage life on untoasted wheat germ will be shorter, thus its higher price.
Wheat germ needs to be incorporated into something tasty, otherwise the food you are eating tastes like little pieces of cardboard that just stick in your teeth.
