Careful separation of the protective outer bran layer from the germ and endosperm produces our satisfying, fiber-rich organic bran. What is wheat bran? Wheat Bran is the outer bran layer of the wheat kernel. The bran is produced when wheat is milled into white flour, and the bran is carefully separated from the whole wheat kernel. Wheat bran is a significant source of fiber. It gives foods a hearty, satisfying texture and can help you feel satiated, or full, for a longer period. While oat bran has more protein, wheat bran is more nutritious and recommended more often as the bran choice for those seeking to lose weight. It contains an array of B-complex vitamins, magnesium and phosphorous and delivers 25 grams of dietary fiber per cup with just 125 calories. Tasty Tips and Storage Wheat bran is a highly convenient fiber source! Sprinkle on yogurt, cereal, soups or salads. Add it to baked good recipes: muffins, bread, cookies and more. It can even be used to replace a portion of the flour in baked goods. Wheat bran should be stored in the refrigerator, or in an airtight container in a cool place to preserve freshness.
