 Wheat Germ is the embryo of the wheat grain. Wheat germ represents approximately 2% of the grain and it contains 8-14% oil. Due to Its high amount of vitamin E  content, It has been used as an antioxidant agent in natural food and health and cosmetic products [1,2].

Wheat Germ oil has the highest tocopherol content of all vegetable oils, up to about 2500 mg/kg and also the highest α-tocopherol content, which represents around 60% of the total content. It is highly valued due to its high content of unsaturated fatty acids of which it contains about 80%, mostly linoleic and linolenic acid  [1,2,3].
