  • 100% whole wheat is good. "Wheat" can mean made with wheat flour, no guarantee that it is whole grain wheat, or maybe it has a bit of whole wheat in it but lots of white flour, too. Whole grain - check the label to see how much is the whole grain and if there is white flour also. But 100% whole grain would be nutritious. If I were choosing, I would pick the 100% whole grain because it likely has a variety of grains and a variety means to me that it has a nicer variety of nutrition.

  • it gets a bit confusing in foods. Whole wheat is a whole grain, but not all whole grains are wheat.

    best advice - read some labels and pick the one with the most vitamins and minerals in it, lowest fat, and lowest carbs

  • Wheat isn't generally not Whole Wheat, if you can get Whole Wheat or Whole Grain it's best. Without that WHOLE it's still just flour and it's been stripped of all the good stuff.

  • Neither...wheat is not a healthy food despite popular belief. A diet with no bread in or wheat free is the best option.
