Wheat Bran, Unprocessed - Millers Bran

Dietary: Clean Eating, Egg-Free, Kosher, Peanut-Free, Tree-Nut Free, Vegan, Vegetarian

Unprocessed Wheat Bran, or Miller's Bran, is simply the outer coating of the wheat kernel that contains large amounts of necessary vitamins, minerals, and fiber. This nutritious part of the wheat kernel is removed in most refined flours, such as all-purpose flours. That makes it important to add Wheat Bran, with its healthy insoluble fiber, back into your family's diet to help promote healthy digestion and wellness. 

Wheat Bran has a light fluffy texture and nutty flavor that can be easily incorporated into delicious muffins, quick breads, cookies, granola, or bars. Or, toast lightly and sprinkle over creamy yogurt or cereals.

Can I eat this product without cooking – add to juice, etc? 
No, the package states this item is not ready to eat and must be thoroughly cooked.

This is the same quality ingredient we have always offered our customers.  We are now required to put this statement on our package according to new regulations, because this product is not heat treated or processed. 
Our customer's safety is paramount, and we have an excellent food safety record.  We have even added microbiological monitoring program for over 500 sites throughout our plant to test for harmful microbes and we have never found any evidence.

We must add this info on package because this product is made from a raw agricultural ingredient, and it does not undergo any heating or “kill-step” to eliminate microbes from the time it is harvested to the milling to packaging it for you. We do everything in our power to create a safe product for our customers, and the risk of foodborne illness is very small, but it does exist. It is safest to cook before eating.


Will this affect any medication I am taking?
We do not offer medical advice. Please check with your health professional.


Can I give this to my pet?
Yes, you can. But it will depend on the size of the animal. Check with your veterinarian. There are recipes on our website for pets.


Why is my product jumping around in the package?
This is caused by static electricity between the bag material and the product. It is harmless.


Are there pesticides in wheat bran?
Per our supplier:
“Quarterly samples are sent out for pesticide residue testing. Samples are consistently below regulatory limits.”
The only guarantee for having no pesticides is to buy organic products. Pesticides are not allowed in the growing of organic products.


What is insoluble fiber?
This type of fiber does not dissolve in water. It passes through the body undigested. It helps to keep the bowels regular and is recommended for digestive health.
