Wheat bran is also a good source of zinc and copper. It also contains more than half of the daily dose (DV) of selenium and more than twice manganese’s daily value (DV). Wheat bran is nutrient-dense while also being low in calories. Half a cup contains only 216 calories, insignificant given the number of nutrients.
It’s also low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, and it’s a decent source of plant-based protein, with roughly 5 grams in half a cup. Wheat bran’s fiber content is arguably its most notable feature.
