NO: While both the unbleached and enriched aspects of flour are good qualities, they do not indicate a whole grain. Unbleached flour is allowed to “bleach” naturally with age, while bleached flour is chemically treated to speed up the whitening process. Enriched flour is nutritionally enhanced with B vitamins, iron, and folic acid. Mix this variety with whole-wheat flour in your favorite recipes to ensure more whole-grain goodness.
