The Wheat Germ Experiment

Tartine Sourdough Wheat Germ Experiment

One of the reasons I started this journal was to experiment with my bread baking, and this entry has me dabbling with a bit of wheat germ. What the heck is wheat germ and why would we want to use it?

More fiber and nutrition with wheat germ? Yes, I think that sounds like two good additions to my family’s bread. After doing some research on the The Fresh Loaf, and through some interactions on Instagram, I quickly ordered a package of Bob’s Red Mill Wheat Germ.
