Whole wheat flour is a powdery substance obtained by grinding the whole grain of wheat. It is often used in baking, however it is usually not the main ingredient as it does not rise as well as white flours. It tends to add to the "heaviness" of the food.

Whole grain flour is typically added along with other flours to add nutrition (especially fiber) and body to baked goods. Compared to white or all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour has a shorter shelf life and tends to be more expensive.

Whole wheat flour is often found in recipes that also contain buckwheat flour, gluten, maple syrup, pumpkin, soy flour and applesauce
