Not a bacteria : Wheat germ is a part of the wheat kernel. The germ is only a very small part of the kernel, approximately 2 ½ percent in total. The word germ does not have anything to do with bacteria; it simply refers to germination. The germ is the reproductive part that germinates and forms the wheat grass. Wheat germ is very high in protein. In fact, wheat germ contains 23 nutrients.
