What Is White Whole Wheat Flour?

So, I had hoped to have a recipe that was interesting and healthy and awesome, but alas, I burned the granola and underbaked  the banana bread.  So no new recipe.  I will have to settle with telling you about white whole wheat flour. 

What is white whole wheat flour?  Good question.  I had never seen it before last week when I picked some up at Trader Joe’s because I was out of whole wheat flour.

White whole wheat flour is whole wheat flour that is whole wheat flour made from spring white wheat rather than red wheat.  It does have a lower gluten and protein content than red wheat, but you can use it  like you would use regular whole wheat flour.
