Wheatgerm / Wheat bran

Hello lovely ladies (and gents) - just wondered if I could pick your brains.

Can someone tell me if wheatgerm / wheat bran are the same thing - I can only find wheatgerm. Asked Dad (the chef) and he says they're close enough for what I want to make (muffins) but are they close enough for Dukan purposes?

Just need something mobile for work days and I think muffins would be ideal - sick of chicken/eggs - had so many over the past 5 weeks that I may start to squawk

Thanks in advance for any help you can give

Sorry, I've no idea if they are the same.
I bought mine in Morrison's in their baking aisle if that helps.

Thanks, Jezebell - it helps that it's not just me being me!! I thought it was maybe this big secret that I was not in on ;)

Good to know there's an alternative if my Morrisons is out

This week has been a nightmare for shops being out of Oatbran and Total 0% - must be the Daily Mail effect :)

Toots: Wheat germ is NOT the same as wheat bran, and is not suitable for the dukan diet.

Jam: One tablespoon of wheatgerm is allowed in cruise as an optional "tolerated item" in addition to the compulsory Two tablespoons of oatbran. It can help with transit issues, and is also a godsend for baking.

Sounds great Vegas. Here in France he advises buying in baker's, rather than in supermarkets, where one can and it's true that the texture and taste of the bread is completely different.

Well done on your weight loss and good luck in Conso.
