Whole wheat flour can be used to make a range of healthy dishes
Wheat is a food grain, which is one of the most popular ones around the world. Wheat is technically a grass and its seeds are harvested for consumption as food cereals. In India especially, wheat (or gehun) is the most popular food grain that is used every day for making chapatis and other flatbreads. Wheat flour is available in various forms, with its highly processed form called maida being used in preparing a variety of baked goods like breads, cakes, pastries etc. Maida is finely milled and bleached till it resembles cake flour and is usually considered unhealthy when consumed in excess, mainly because all the nutritious elements of wheat have been removed in the final product. Whole wheat, on the other hand, is considered quite nutritious.
