I’ve taken to baking with wholemeal flour a lot more lately because it’s health benefits outweigh that of the super processed white flour.

Wholemeal flour is rich in vitamins B1, B3, and B5, plus it has riboflavin and folate.

It also has more iron, calcium, protein, and other nutrients than white flour.
Wholemeal flour is a better option for diabetics as well, it obviously has much more fibre which slows down the rise in blood sugar levels caused by carbs. (That’s not saying diabetics can overload of wholemeal baked goods! It’s just a better option for the occasional treat.)
