Whole Wheat Flour

Ingredient: Whole Wheat Flour
Origin: Unknown

Surprisingly, most home cooks are unaware of the benefits of whole wheat flour. All purpose, bleached flour has become a staple in kitchens across the world, and has its advantages in certain recipes. However, whole wheat flour can be easily interchanged with AP, and has many health and flavor benefits.

Whole wheat flour is the wheat grain, pulverized in its entirety (the germ, bran and endosperm). When using the whole grain, the essential nutrients of wheat are still intact. Using whole wheat flour adds a significant amount of fiber, protein and vitamins that are lacking in other more processed flours.

Whole wheat flour can be purchased at a wide range of grocery stores and whole food markets. This flour can also be interchanged with other flours (such as AP flour, rice flour, almond flour, etc.).
