Whole Wheat Flour

Whole-wheat flour is derived by grinding or mashing the whole grain of wheat, also known as the wheatberry. Whole-wheat flour is used in baking of breads and other baked goods, and also typically mixed with other lighter “white” unbleached or bleached flours (that have been treated with flour bleaching agent(s)) to restore nutrients to the white flours (especially fiber, protein, and vitamins), texture, and body that are lost in milling and other processing. This flour is more nutritious than refined white flour as it contain the macronutrients of the wheat’s bran and germ (especially fiber and protein). Whole grain is a good source of calcium, iron, fiber, and other minerals like selenium.
