Whole Germ Cornmeal
The grocery store I go to sells bags of grains: big bulk bags of flour, oatmeal, rice, etc. They're labelled by the store, not by some company. The other day, I bought cornmeal, and when I got it home, realized it said "whole germ" rather than "whole grain." Is it the same as whole grain, or does "whole germ" imply that the hulls were taken out? Thanks!
