**Orange peel is a monoterpene; a master detoxifier for you body. So it not only makes things taste excellent and fresh, is excellent for your bod! ;-) My kids call them "sprinkles" and think they are getting a special treat. Well, I guess they are.

** Wheat germ is high in fiber and protein. It is very low calorie and non-fat. Wheat germ is high in Vitamin E- best known for it's prevention in heart disease and strengthening the immune system.

Wheat germ is a great source of Folic Acid, which is a B vitamin necessary for hear and blood vessel health.  Research has linked Folic Acid in protecting against neural birth defects.
