5 out of 5 people would recommend this product07/03/2018, By WillieWere I not happy the first time I ordered Wheat Germ from you, I would not be writing a review now.... I cannot live without Wheat Germ. I battle to get it in and around Pretoria. You supply a quality product, the service and delivery (all the way from the Cape) is (are?) recommendable. If I live that long, you will hear from me, soon..! Thank you!25/01/2018, By GeorginaI order this product on a regular basis and keep it in my fridge. I love adding it to my baking - especially muffins and crumpets. I substitute 1 third of the flour in traditional recipes for wheat germ and that seems to be a good balance. Gives a lovely nutty and wholesome texture and taste to my baking.Strong, reusable packaging. I use it mainly in my smoothies for added fibre but sometimes add to my baking just for a different texture and again to boost the fibre content.16/10/2017, By KimStrong, reusable packaging.

Can definitely recommend.23/04/2016, By RalfI recently ordered 5 packs of Wheat Germ. The order was placed in the evening and the goods were courier-delivered to my door the next afternoon. Painless, quick and cheaper than driving to a health store (if they have stock), finding parking etc.
I will definitely buy from Faithful to Nature again.
