Whole-wheat flour is
brown in color, and is derived from the complete wheat kernel (the bran
and germ). This flour usually is ground from the Hard Red Wheat Berry
which contains more gluten then some other varieties of wheat.
When used in bread baking, it gives a nutty
flavor and a denser texture when compared to all-purpose flour. Bread does
not rise as high in whole-wheat breads, which is why a mixture of both
whole-wheat and white flour is often used when baking.
