Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Stick with 100 percent whole grain flour only. Anything other than 100 percent whole grains means they took the good stuff out. And don't fall for the misconception that "enriched flour" is healthier than regular flour. The enriched means they took all the good stuff out, and put a little of it back in. Enriched flour is not much better for you than straight sugar.
