Whole wheat flour is ground from the entire wheat kernel giving baked goods a wholesome, nutty flavor and dense texture. Because this flour contains the fat from the wheat germ portion of the kernel, it can become rancid, so it’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Allow the flour to come to room temperature before using in recipes.
