Flour: Calories & Nutrition Facts
Sorted by Brand
While all-purpose flour tends to be high in carbs and low in protein and fat, that is not true of all flours. Whole-wheat and alternative flours can offer a variety of nutritional benefits. Refer to the calorie counter for different types of flour to determine the calories and nutritional value.
Whole-Wheat FlourOne of the main differences between white flour and whole wheat flour is the fiber content – whole-wheat flour contains about 6.4 grams of fiber per serving while white flour only contains 1.3 grams. It is the refining process that white flour goes through which removes the fiber-rich bran from the wheat grain. Choosing whole-wheat flour over all-purpose flour can help you to meet your daily recommended fiber intake of 28 grams.
Alternative FloursYou are probably most familiar with products made using all-purpose flour or even whole-wheat flour, but alternative flours made from gluten-free food sources are rapidly increasing in popularity. Almond flour and coconut flour, for example, are lower in carbs than all-purpose flour but higher in healthy fats and they also contain some protein. Items made with alternative flours are not just for those with special medical or nutritional requirements – they can be enjoyed by everyone!
While some types of flour may not be beneficial to your health, other types are. Refer to the calorie calculator for different types of flour to determine the calories and nutritional value.
