The shell that forms the outermost part of the wheat is called the wheat bran. Washed and dried wheat is ground in the mill, and this crustacean part, which is separated from the wheat, is as healthy and valuable as wheat flour.
The wheat bran has much more fibre in it than the wheat itself. Wheat bran is especially rich in vitamins of group B. It contains high proportions of thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and folate.
In addition to these benefits, it is an important source of vegetable protein and stands out in terms of its use in the feed industry.
