Best Answer

Whole wheat flour is just that, wheat that is ground into flour with nothing removed. White flour is just the middle part of the wheat kernel without the bran or wheat germ. Enriched flour has vitamins added to it to make up for the bran and wheat germ. Refined could mean any of these other than whole wheat.
