EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour can be used in any recipe. It’s the best of both worlds—100% whole grain but with a lighter taste and color. Start substituting 25% or 50% of the all-purpose flour with Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour, gradually increasing proportion as desired.
