What is the difference between using graham flour rather than whole wheat flour?

Rating: 81

Both graham and whole-wheat flour contain the bran, germ and endosperm of the wheat kernel. Graham flour is more coarsely ground than whole-wheat flour. Dough made with graham flour may seem sticky and the bread may be lower in volume. By allowing the dough to rest before kneading, the dough won't be as sticky.
