Bleached vs. Unbleached

Learn the difference between bleached and unbleached flour.
Choosing which type of flour you want is up to you.
  • Both types of flour are all-purpose, which means they're equally good for making most baked goods. The difference is that bleached flour has been made chemically whiter in appearance than unbleached flour.
  • The bleaching process does compromise some of the flour's nutrients, but they are often added back to the flour.
  • Which flour you choose is a personal preference. Some bakers like their white cake and bread as white as they can be; others prefer their flour to be processed as little as possible.
