Multigrain Flour can be an important part of a healthy diet and an excellent way to eat more, whole grains. Multigrain meaning several different types of grains mixed.Multigrain flour is going to taste different than Refined flour. The big difference is that it actually has a taste. White flour/Refined flour takes on other flavors during baking, while multigrain brings its own flavor elements.
Instead of using Refined flour sharing a cake recipe of Whole wheat with Multigrain,Yogurt ,Nuts & Chocochips.Adding Chocochips because my daughter’s like it .one can leave choco chips or nuts in a recipe. Sweetness Depend on individual taste buds so increased or decreased.
