How much gluten is in wheat germ and wheat bran?

I dont know how much gluten they contain, but my feeling is that it is likely

to be more than you would find in wheat starch and so best avoided by celiac patients.

Bran doesn't necessarily contain the same amino acids as endosperm therefore the proteins may differ. I can't find the answer to this anywhere though!

I agree with you. In addition the nutritional value of wheat germ is outstanding, also the extremely low level of gluten contamination is very likely to cause not reaction in the majority of gluten intolerant folks, so it is worth a try. I believe that you cannot get a cheaper source of natural digestible vitamins than in wheat germ.

what I need is a suitable replacement for wheat bran - rice makes my blood sugar rise and I just read from an ND that quinoa and amaranth are not good for celiac disease either.

An excellent replacement for wheat bran is ground flax seed, you get omega3 in as a great additional benefit.
