Cereal

graincerealsgrains
The germ of a cereal is the reproductive part that germinates to grow into a plant; it is the embryo of the seed.
A cereal is any of the edible components of the grain (botanically, a type of fruit, called a caryopsis) of cultivated grass, composed of the endosperm, germ, and bran.

Bran

Along with bran, germ is often a by-product of the milling that produces refined grain products.
Along with germ, it is an integral part of whole grains, and is often produced as a byproduct of milling in the production of refined grains.

Wheat germ oil

oil
Cereal grains and their components, such as wheat germ oil, rice bran oil, and maize, may be used as a source from which vegetable oil is extracted, or used directly as a food ingredient.
Wheat germ oil is extracted from the germ of the wheat kernel, which makes up only 2.5% by weight of the kernel Wheat germ oil is particularly high in octacosanol - a 28-carbon long-chain saturated primary alcohol found in a number of different vegetable waxes.

Whole grain

whole wheatwhole-grainwhole grains
The germ is retained as an integral part of whole-grain foods.
A whole grain, also called a wholegrain, is a grain of any cereal and pseudocereal that contains the endosperm, germ, and bran, in contrast to refined grains, which retain only the endosperm.

White bread

whitewhite-breadmane full fyne
White bread is made using flour that has had the germ and bran removed.
White bread typically refers to breads made from wheat flour from which the bran and the germ layers have been removed (and set aside) from the whole wheatberry as part of the flour grinding or milling process, producing a light-colored flour.

Flour

farinaceouswhite flourmeal
White bread is made using flour that has had the germ and bran removed.
Cereal flour consists either of the endosperm, germ, and bran together (whole-grain flour) or of the endosperm alone (refined flour).

Vitamin E

EVitamins EE vitamins
Wheat germ or wheatgerm is a concentrated source of several essential nutrients, including vitamin E, folate (folic acid), phosphorus, thiamin, zinc, and magnesium, as well as essential fatty acids and fatty alcohols.

Cell-free system

cell-freecell-free media
In molecular biology, wheat germ extract is used to carry out cell-free in vitro translation experiments since the plant embryo contains all the macromolecular components necessary for translating mRNA into amino acids but relatively low levels of its own mRNA.
E. coli, wheat germ, and rabbit reticulocytes have all proven useful to create cell-free systems by extraction of their interior components.

In vitro

in-vitrolaboratorylaboratory culture
In molecular biology, wheat germ extract is used to carry out cell-free in vitro translation experiments since the plant embryo contains all the macromolecular components necessary for translating mRNA into amino acids but relatively low levels of its own mRNA.
Examples of in vitro studies include: the isolation, growth and identification of cells derived from multicellular organisms in (cell or tissue culture); subcellular components (e.g. mitochondria or ribosomes); cellular or subcellular extracts (e.g. wheat germ or reticulocyte extracts); purified molecules such as proteins, DNA, or RNA); and the commercial production of antibiotics and other pharmaceutical products.

Rice bran oil

Cereal grains and their components, such as wheat germ oil, rice bran oil, and maize, may be used as a source from which vegetable oil is extracted, or used directly as a food ingredient.

Corn oil

Corn oil (maize oil) is oil extracted from the germ of corn (maize).

Farina (food)

It is made from the germ and endosperm of the grain, which is milled to a fine consistency then sifted.

Germ (mathematics)

germgermsfunction germ
The name is derived from cereal germ in a continuation of the sheaf metaphor, as a germ is (locally) the "heart" of a function, as it is for a grain.

Fermented wheat germ extract

Fermented wheat germ extract (FWGE), also called fermented wheat germ powder (FWGP), is a concentrated extract of wheat germ derived from the germ (endosperm, or seed) of the wheat plant.

Ceuthophilus

Items observed in the diets of Ceuthophilus species include jelly, tuna, rancid liver, American cheese, pet food, oatmeal, wheat germ, peanut butter, molasses, wild fungi, persimmon, bread, dead and living insects, insect eggs, arachnids, dead bats, dead ring-tailed cats, and human feces.

Wheat flour

cake flourwheatflour
In terms of the parts of the grain (the grass fruit) used in flour—the endosperm or protein/starchy part, the germ or protein/fat/vitamin-rich part, and the bran or fiber part—there are three general types of flour.

Broken rice

brokenbroken rice grainsbreak the rice
Broken rice is fragmented, not defective; there is nothing wrong with it. It is as nutritious as the equivalent unbroken rice (i.e. if all the germ and bran remains, it is as nutritious as brown rice; if none remains, it is only as nutritious as white rice).

Grits

Hominy grits is a type of grits made from hominy, corn that has been treated with an alkali in a process called nixtamalization with the cereal germ removed.

Refined grains

The modification process generally involves the mechanical removal of bran and germ, either through grinding or selective sifting.

Cornmeal

corn mealcorn flourmaize meal
Steel-ground yellow cornmeal, which is common mostly in the United States, has the husk and germ of the maize kernel almost completely removed. It is conserved for about a year if stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

Brown rice

Brown rice is whole-grain rice with the inedible outer hull removed; white rice is the same grain with the hull, bran layer, and cereal germ removed.

Unifine mill

The flour produced by these mills was quite coarse as they included the bran and the germ elements of the grain.

Dry milling and fractionation of grain

dry milling
The milling process separates the grain into four distinct physical components: the germ, flour, fine grits, and coarse grits.

Brown rice is whole grain, with only the inedible hull of the seed removed, while white (milled) rice additionally has the bran and germ removed through the process of milling.
