This is the seed that grows into wheat grass as we see it in fields. Wheat germ is a very small part of a grain of wheat - approx 2.5% of the weight. The word 'germ' refers to germination, which is the reproductive part of the kernel that germinates and forms the wheat grass. You can add wheat germ to foods like protein shakes, cereals, toast or as part of general cooking. As you can see from the diagram the wheat kernel is divided up into 3 distinctive parts: Bran: The bran is the outside layer of the kernel and is approx 14% of the kernel weight. It contains the most fiber and protects the inner parts of the wheat kernel. Endosperm: The endosperm makes up approx 83% of the kernel weight and the source of white flour.
