So, what is enriched wheat flour?

Enriched wheat flour is a staple ingredient commonly used in baked goods, such as bread, cakes, and pastries. It is made by removing the bran and germ from the wheat kernel and then adding back some of the nutrients that were lost during processing, such as iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid. This process results in a refined flour that is finer and lighter in texture than whole wheat flour. Enriched wheat flour is a versatile ingredient that provides a neutral flavor and a smooth texture, making it a popular choice for many recipes.
