Will raw wheat germ make our smoothie bitter?
If the wheat germ is freshly prepared from wheat grains it will not be bitter. However, wheat germ contains oils that quickly go rancid as soon as the grain is ground and the wheat germ separated out. It is the rancid oils in stale wheat germ that cause the bitter taste. When the wheat germ is rancid it no longer has any special nutritive value. If a package of wheat germ is on sale, it is probably because it went rancid and the store manager knows it.

Is wheat germ different from wheat sprouts?
Wheat germ is completely different from wheat spouts. The germ is a portion of a grain of wheat that contains protein, oil and other nutrients. It is removed when wheat is milled into white flour. Wheat sprouts are whole grains of wheat that begin to grow - sprout - when soaked in water, drained, then kept moist in a dark place. They have tiny roots and stems with leaf buds.
