It is common knowledge that whole-grain flour is healthier than white flour, but what is whole-grain flour? This question may seem ridiculous, but read on – things are not always as they seem.

The definition of whole-grain flour is quite simple but has become complicated (unnecessarily) by the modern industrial mills. True whole grain flour results from grinding the entire grain and not removing any parts of it from the resulting flour.
