WHOLE WHEAT vs. WHOLE GRAIN
(Whole Wheat IS Whole Grain)

One question that I am asked quite often is “what is the difference between whole wheat and whole grain?” Or sometimes, someone will tell me that they don’t want whole wheat, they want whole grain, or even that whole wheat ISN’T whole grain. I usually explain that wheat is a type of grain, so they really need to focus on the “whole” part.  “Whole” means that the entire grain is included, all of the nutritious parts, whether that grain be wheat, or barley, or corn or whatever.
