Wheat Germ Oil: The Vegetable Oil with Ample of Benefits

With increasing awareness of the benefits of vegetable oils as food and nutraceuticals (health-enhancing foods), the demand for vegetable oil has rapidly risen. However, this global trend leads to the insufficiency of vegetable oils, which entails exploring new sources of edible oil to meet the demands. And wheat germ oil is as valuable as gold. The oil gets extracted through the cold-pressing method without exposure to oxygen and light to prevent the loss of essential nutrients.

Wheat is the primary staple food in India. Wheat bran and wheat germ are two parts of wheat grain; the outer coat of the grain and the reproductive part of the grain, respectively. Wheat germ oil gets extracted from the germ part of the wheat grain. Wheat germ is the heart of the wheat kernel. The germ part of wheat is the nutrient-dense core with the highest protein, vitamins, and minerals content. Wheat germ oil has a sweet, slightly nutty, and pleasant grainy flavour and offers vitamins and antioxidants higher than any other natural oil. Therefore, this oil is suitable for culinary, medicinal, and therapeutic purposes.

Nutritional Composition of Wheat Germ Oil

The nutritional composition of wheat germ oil per 100g is as follows:

  • Calories: 884 kcal
  • Total fat content: 100g
  • Saturated fatty acids: 18.8 g
  • Monounsaturated fatty acids: 15.1 g
  • Polyunsaturated fats: 61.7 g
  • Choline: 20 mg
  • Vitamin E: 149 mg
  • Vitamin K: 27.7 μg


One hundred grams of wheat germ oil has about 884 kcal. So when you use one tablespoon of wheat germ oil, it will provide 120 Kcal.


Wheat germ oil contains zero carbohydrates, meaning no starch, fibre, or sugar. Without carbohydrates, the glycemic index of wheat germ oil is also zero. Zero glycemic index means there’s no effect on blood sugar levels.

Lipids (Fats)

Wheat germ oil is a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, also regarded as good fat. It contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. In addition, it contains alpha-linolenic acid as well as linoleic acid. It also contains healthy monounsaturated fatty acids along with saturated fatty acids. Wheat germ oil contains eight times more omega-6 (linoleic acid) fatty acids than omega-3 (linolenic acid) fatty acids. However, it can also be a downside because omega-3 is healthier than omega-6.

Vitamins and Minerals

Wheat germ oil provides an alpha-tocopherol form of vitamin E. A single serving of wheat germ oil can provide 135% of recommended daily vitamin E intake. It also contains a small amount of vitamin K used for blood clotting. While minerals are abundant in wheat germ, most minerals get lost during the oil extraction. As a result, there are only trace minerals in the wheat germ oil.

Health Benefits of Wheat Germ Oil

Helps Treat Cardiovascular Diseases

Wheat germ oil contains nutrients that help treat the symptoms associated with cardiovascular disorders. Wheat germ oil contains phytosterols that reduce cholesterol levels by reducing their absorption. In addition, the omega-3 fatty acids in wheat germ oil help reduce blood cholesterol levels. Studies show that omega-3 fatty acid has significantly reduced the mortality risk caused by cardiac arrhythmias and coronary heart diseases. It reduces the risks associated with CHD like LDL cholesterol levels and high blood pressure and improves blood circulation. DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty are excellent cardioprotective agents.

Omega-3 fatty acids in wheat germ oil decrease the levels of serum triglycerides by boosting the degradation of fatty acids. In addition, reduction in hepatic synthesis of LDL cholesterol also helps reduce triglyceride levels.

Another study shows that omega-3 fatty acid intake reduces plasma triglycerides, resting heart rate, and blood pressure. It enhances the efficiency of myocardial function and improves vascular function by increasing blood flow. It suggests that consuming omega-3 fatty acids reduces the risk of sudden cardiac death.

Antioxidant Properties

Wheat germ oil is a good source of vitamin E, a powerful radical-scavenging antioxidant that helps scavenge free radicals such as lipid oxidation and peroxidation. It also contains different forms of vitamin E; tocotrienols and alpha-tocopherols. Lipid oxidation is a precursor of chronic metabolic disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer. It also helps to improve the immune system. In addition, vitamin E possesses anti-inflammatory properties that help in easing inflammation.

Studies suggest that increased levels of tocopherols in the body show scavenging effects against oxidation damage. As a result, it reduces the progression of atherosclerosis, fatty liver diseases, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases.

study demonstrates that tocopherols inhibit the formation and growth of cancer in the lungs and colon. In addition, it shows the anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic activities of tocopherols in the lungs and colon.

Anti-Ageing Properties

Wheat germ oil contains potent antioxidants which possess anti-ageing activities. It delays the progression of anti-ageing signs and symptoms such as dull skin, uneven tone, wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, dry skin, sagging, and dark spots on the skin. Wheat germ oil has omega-3 fatty acids that possess nourishing and moisturising effects and help treat dry and damaged skin. It has a potent antioxidant nutrient, vitamin E that fights against free radicals and prevents oxidative damage. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars by stimulating collagen formation between cells.

Studies suggest wheat germ oil contains vitamin E, B-complex, unsaturated fatty acids, and other phytochemicals. It further shows that the dose-dependent formulation of wheat germ oil significantly increased the wound healing activity. For example, wheat germ ointment reduced the wound size by 90% within three weeks.

Wheat germ oil has nourishing and moisturising properties that help in hair growth. It stimulates the growth of hair and increases blood circulation in the scalp. Linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid in wheat germ oil strengthens the hair follicles and restores the moisture content in the hair strands. It improves the elasticity of hair strands and adds shine, strength, and softness to the hair.

Anti-Diabetic Effect

study assesses the effects of wheat germ oil on diabetes. It demonstrated that wheat germ oil significantly reduced the fasting blood glucose, HbA1c, serum lipid profile, serum insulin, and HDL cholesterol levels. Persistent hyperglycemia increased the production of free radicals in diabetic patients. Wheat germ oil possesses potent antioxidant activity that scavenges the free radicals and reduces oxidative damage. The study proved that high doses of wheat germ oil exhibit anti-diabetic, anti-hyperlipidemic, and antioxidant properties. In addition, it possesses protective effects against diabetic complications.

Possible Side Effects of Wheat Germ Oil

While there are certain benefits of wheat germ oil, it can also cause various potential risks such as:

Allergic Reactions

Wheat germ oil is relatively safe and has several health benefits but can cause allergic reactions. A protein named agglutinin is present in wheat germ associated with a wheat allergy. Although during the extraction of wheat germ oil, loss of a large amount of protein occurs. It is not sure whether germ oil will cause allergic symptoms. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and you should avoid using wheat germ oil if you have a wheat allergy. It can cause gastrointestinal problems, skin irritation, and dizziness. It can be severe if the individual has pre-existing medical conditions.

Kidney Stones

Wheat germ contains high oxalate content. It has about 10 milligrams of oxalic acid per tablespoon. Excess consumption of oxalate can be the cause of kidney stones in people. However, the presence of oxalic acid wheat germ oil is not known.

Interacts With Anti-Diabetic Drugs

Wheat germ oil often regulates blood sugar levels, hence maintaining diabetic conditions. But taking alongside anti-diabetic drugs can lead to dangerously low blood sugar levels. It can cause hypoglycemic conditions.

Topical Application of Wheat Germ Oil

Wheat germ oil can cause skin irritation, inflammation, redness, swelling, and rashes in people with sensitive skin or hypersensitivity. It is best to avoid the oil. Do a patch test before applying it topically anywhere on the body.

Interacts With Hypertension Medications

Wheat germ oil lowers blood pressure. However, if taken with blood pressure-lowering medications, it might lead to a deadly drop in blood pressure. Always consult a physician about wheat germ oil before adding this into the diet.

The ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is 1:1 or 1:4. The percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in wheat germ oil is 1:8. If not eaten in moderation, it can increase blood cholesterol levels, leading to several metabolic disorders.

Ways to Use Wheat Germ Oil

Storage Tips for Wheat Germ Oil

Wheat germ oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. If not stored correctly, it can rapidly become rancid and sour. Therefore, proper storage of wheat germ oil is essential to prevent rancidity and spoilage. Some of the tips to keep wheat germ oil are as follows:

  • Since wheat germ oil is sensitive to air and light contact, store the wheat germ oil in a tight glass container in a dry, dark place to prevent the loss of nutrients due to oxidation. Polyunsaturated fatty acids present in the oil are highly prone to oxidation. Vitamin E protects the oil against deterioration associated with oxidation.
  • Keeping the oil in the refrigerator may increase its shelf life by six months. However, it should be consumed as swiftly as possible, preferably in 2-3 months. Store the oil in cold storage to preserve its freshness. While placing the oil at a cold temperature, ensure the lid of the oil container is tight to prevent air and moisture from entering the container. Double-check to ensure the oil is placed in a tightly sealed container to avoid spoilage.
  • You should not heat wheat germ oil as it leads to fat oxidation, resulting in loss of taste, flavour, and essential nutrients.
  • Wheat germ oil is sensitive to air and light contact. Therefore, when it comes in contact with air or light, it results in spoilage, i.e., rancidity and loss of taste and nutrients.
  • Conventionally produced wheat germ oil may contain insecticides that might cause harmful effects on the human body. Always try to buy oil from organic cultivation, preferably extracted through cold-pressed technology.


Wheat germ oil is an exceptionally healthy oil extracted from the germ part of the wheat grain. It is a rich source of tocopherols, i.e. vitamin E and polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It possesses anti-diabetic, anti-hyperlipidemic, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, anti-ageing, and antioxidant properties. Wheat germ oil is known for many health benefits, but it might cause side effects. The research on wheat germ oil is not adequate to reach any conclusions.

Aside from that, wheat germ oil has particular storage conditions. Improper storage conditions may lead to rancidity, i.e., spoilage and loss of taste and essential nutrients. Furthermore, with the low shelf life span, you must consume it within 2-3 months of opening to avoid spoilage.

Wheat germ oil sounds like a healthy product that you should keep in your kitchen. But many consumers keep it in the bathroom. What is wheat germ oil used for? According to many sources, the oil provides beauty benefits.1 Fans of the products use wheat germ oil for hair and skin health. But you can also use it in the kitchen if you choose.

The following nutrition information is provided by the USDA for one tablespoon of wheat germ oil.

  • Calories: 120
  • Fat: 14g
  • Sodium: 0mg
  • Carbohydrates: 0g
  • Fiber: 0g
  • Sugars: 0g
  • Protein: 0g

Carbs in Wheat Germ Oil

There are no carbohydrates in wheat germ oil. That means there is no starch, no fiber, and no sugar (added or naturally occurring) in this product.

Wheat germ oil has a glycemic index (GI) of zero, and if consumed, a single serving of the product also has a glycemic load of zero. That means that the food has no effect on your blood sugar levels. As a reference, foods with a GI of 55 or below are considered low glycemic foods.

Fats in Wheat Germ Oil

The fat in wheat germ oil is what makes this product popular among healthy eaters and beauty buffs. Wheat germ oil provides polyunsaturated fat, considered to be a “good” fat. Polyunsaturated fat is liquid at room temperature and may boost heart health when you use it to replace less healthy fat (like saturated fat) in your diet.

There are two different kinds of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and wheat germ oil contains both of them. According to USDA data, you’ll get 85 percent (just under 1 gram) of your daily recommended intake of α-linolenic acid (ALA) omega-3 fatty acids. And you’ll get 62 percent (7 grams) of your recommended daily intake of linoleic acid or omega-6 fatty acids.

You’ll also get 2 grams of healthy monounsaturated fat in a single serving of wheat germ oil. You’ll also get nearly 3 grams or 12 percent of your recommended daily intake of saturated fat, a fat that is considered to be less healthy.

Protein in Wheat Germ Oil

There is no protein in wheat germ oil. However, some healthy eaters may use wheat germ oil in marinades, in protein smoothies, or in yogurt to take advantage of the healthy fat that it provides.

Micronutrients in Wheat Germ Oil

If you consume a single serving of wheat germ oil you’ll get 135 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin E. This vitamin is an antioxidant that may help neutralize potentially harmful free radicals in the body and provide protective benefits against certain diseases, like prostate cancer or Alzheimer’s disease. However, research has provided mixed results, so health experts don’t know for sure if consuming more vitamin E is beneficial.2

A single serving also provides a very small amount (4 percent of your recommended daily intake) of vitamin K, a vitamin that is essential for blood clotting purposes in the body.

Health Benefits

The health benefits of wheat germ oil come primarily from the healthy fat that it provides. However, it is important to remember that all fat—even healthy fat—is energy dense. That means it provides more calories per gram than carbohydrate or protein. While carbs and protein provide just four calories per gram, fat provides nine. So it is important to consume all fats in moderation if your goal is to reach or maintain a healthy weight.

Hair and Skin Benefits

Beauty buffs also use wheat germ oil to combat hair loss, dandruff, dry skin, wrinkles, lice, and premature aging. To gain the benefits of this oil on the skin and hair, consumers use the product topically. That means, they massage it into the scalp or mix it into conditioners or shampoo to apply to the hair.

Unfortunately, however, there is not strong support from the scientific community about the use of wheat germ oil for hair or skin. According to one research review, “After so many years of research on vitamin E, it is still unclear as to whether millions of dollars worth of vitamin E products paid for by patients and consumers have been of any benefit.”3

Common Questions

What should I look for when purchasing wheat germ oil?

Look for a product that has not been bleached or hydrogenated. This may not be an oil that you use very often so look for a smaller container unless you plan to use it often.

How should I store wheat germ oil?

Store the oil in an air-tight container in your pantry or in another cool dark place. The recommended temperature is 20-25°C or no more than 77 °F.

Can I cook with wheat germ oil?

Cooking or heating wheat germ oil causes it to lose its nutritional benefits. So frying with wheat germ oil is not recommended. However, you can use the oil in salad dressings, drizzle it on vegetables, pasta, or other dishes for a boost of flavor and omega-3 fatty acids.
