Virgin Wheatgerm is a rich oil, particularly high in vitamin E. Wheatgerm oil is a very nourishing oil particularly suited for dry, damaged and mature skin. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants helping to combat the emergence of free radicals and other damaging elements in the skin. Virgin wheatgerm is the oil exactly as it comes cold pressed from the fruit. It has a stronger odour than refined oil and is also cloudier in appearance as minute particles of the grain are present in the oil.All vegetable oils & fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon). Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil. Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
