Traditional all-purpose, or white, and whole wheat flours are milled from hard red wheat berries; both flours contain the wheat’s endosperm, while whole wheat flour also contains the bran and germ.
White whole wheat flour is milled from the hard white wheat berry. It contains the entire wheat berry; the difference is in the white berry’s bran, and the result is a lighter colored, sweeter tasting flour. Retaining the bran and germ yields a flour with more fiber and naturally occurring nutrients. Enjoy the mild flavor, lighter texture and 100% of the nutritional value of traditional whole wheat flour. White whole wheat flour is a good way to get more fiber and nutrients into your diet.
Find whole white wheat flour in most well-stocked grocery stores and food co-ops.
