wheat vs whole wheat : Common Errors in English

About wheat vs whole wheat

Waiters routinely ask “Wheat or white?” when bread is ordered, but the white bread is also made of wheat. The correct term is “whole wheat,” in which the whole grain, including the bran and germ, has been used to make the flour. “Whole wheat” does not necessarily imply that no white flour has been used in the bread; most whole wheat breads incorporate some white flour.

  • (n) annual or biennial grass having erect flower spikes and light brown grains
  • (n) grains of common wheat; sometimes cooked whole or cracked as cereal; usually ground into flour
  • (n) a variable yellow tint; dull yellow, often diluted with white
