According to the analysis, it is not all true. As seen from the relevant data, the whiter flour mineral content will be lower, and some finished products, even with whitener added. From the perspective of nutritional value, it is not conducive to human health, consumers need to choose carefully.

In addition, the flour processed by the flour processing equipment can be classified into high-gluten flour, medium-gluten flour and low-gluten flour according to the protein content. Generally, the lower the gluten, the whiter the flour will be. Among them, high-gluten flour is often used to make bread, medium-gluten flour is used to make buns, steamed buns, noodles, etc., while low-gluten flour is suitable for making the pastry of cakes, biscuits and other fluffy crispy taste.

Consumers who want to get foods with higher nutritional value should try to be processed or purchased by regular manufacturers. In actual life, there is also a flour processing equipment called stone mill flour machine, although the color is deeper, but the nutritional value is several times higher than ordinary flour. This shows that the purchase of flour can not be seen alone, the overall observation is very important.
