White Whole-Wheat Flour

White whole-wheat flour is a whole-grain flour made from a variety of wheat—white wheat— that has a light-colored bran husk. The light color of the bran indicates that there are fewer strong-tasting tannins, compounds that, in wheat flour, can cause an unpleasant taste. White whole-wheat flour has a milder flavor than regular whole-wheat flour, even though it includes the outer bran husk.
