White Whole-Wheat Bread?
Have you ever wondered why some whole-wheat bread or flour is white? White whole-wheat flour comes from a different type of wheat that's naturally lighter and milder than the red wheat used to make traditional whole-wheat flour.
If you prefer products made with refined white flour, whole-white wheat products are appealing. Nutritionally speaking, they're comparable to traditional whole-wheat flour.
Remember, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend making half of the grains you eat whole grains. Keep in mind that "multigrain" or "wheat" doesn't necessarily mean "whole grain." So check the nutrition facts label for "100 percent whole grain" when looking for whole grain products.
