What is the difference between all-natural whole wheat flour and all-natural white whole wheat flour?
Specifically, wheat Montana bronze chief and prairie gold?Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.
I don't know about those varieties, but I can comment on the KA whole wheat vs white whole wheat. The KA whole wheat is a hard red winter wheat (and a darker variety). Their white whole wheat is still whole wheat, just a softer spring variety with a lighter grain color (not a mixture between the white and wheat). The white whole wheat also has a milder taste as compared to the darker, regular whole wheat. So it might be the same with those two.
Wheat Montana mills the Bronze Chief flour from hard red wheat and the Prairie Gold flour from hard white wheat. Both are excellent flours that I have used.
Great! I think the public at large would prefer the white whole wheat. I'll start with that.
The public at large will definitely prefer the WWW. If you want to add some red - start around 10 to 30%, it gives it a bit of flavor, but not the overwhelming grassy flavor of 100% red.
A while back I was experimenting with Debra Wink's 100% whole-wheat sandwich loaf. Initially I struggled to get the rise and overall results that Debra got. She helped me through a series of bakes while tweaking each. I was using white whole wheat milled the day before baking. Eventually able to source some winter red wheat and discovered it was much higher in the protein per-cent. I was able to eliminate the use of wheat gluten and was able to copy the results of Debra's.
