What is Enriched Wheat?
To make white flour for breads or products like Albuquerque Homestyle Flour Tortillas, manufacturers remove the outer coating, or the bran, and the germ of the wheat kernel. What's left is the endosperm, the inside of the kernel, which is then ground into a fine, white flour. Bread makers replace many of the nutrients lost during this milling process while they're preparing the dough in an effort to make sure that it contains the same nutrients as those found in whole-wheat bread doughs.
Though the calcium, phosphorus, thiamine, niacin and vitamin E are almost fully replaced during the enriching process, makers also add vitamin A and riboflavin but do not replace the fiber lost during the milling. These nutrients are members of the B vitamin group. Thiamine helps with normal nervous system functioning. Riboflavin promotes healthy vision, provides energy and promotes healthy skin. Niacin helps you to properly digest foods and helps to maintain a normal appetite and nervous system.
