Keeping Your Wheat Germ Fresh—Here’s How
After popping the seal on your jar of Kretschmer wheat germ, don’t forget to store it in the refrigerator.
Wondering why? Wheat germ is similar to any kind of vegetable, flax or sesame seed oils: If you keep it exposed for too long at room temperature (after jar is opened for the first time), it will spoil.
Refer to the jar of Kretschmer Wheat Germ for a “best when used by” date and use that as your guide for ensuring freshness and optimum nutrient levels.
The best way to keep wheat germ fresh is to incorporate it into your daily meals and replenish it regularly. So keep this jar of super food front and center in your meal planning!
