What is Whole Wheat Flour? Why it's called Whole Wheat Flour? Why this wheat flour is called Whole Wheat Flour?
Answer: Whole Wheat Flour is that kind of Wheat Flour (powdery substance), which is obtained by only grinding the complete, entire, whole grains of wheat or complete/whole wheat berries, and the brans & germs are not removed from it.
It's called "Whole" Wheat Flour because nothing is removed, refined, filtered after grinding the grains, berries of the wheat. The word ‘Whole’ is used to describe, as it includes every aspect of the grain, meaning the bran, germ and the endosperm.
What is White Whole Wheat Flour?
Answer: In the United States, White Whole Wheat Flour is flour milled from hard white spring wheat and contains bran and germ.
In the United Kingdom and India whole-wheat flour is more commonly made from white wheat instead of hard winter red wheat, as in the United States.
What is ASH in Wheat Flour? What Does Ash in Food Mean?
Ash refers to the inorganic material, such as minerals, present in food. It is the portion of the food or any organic material that remains after it is burned at very high temperatures. Some minerals are essential to a healthy diet (for example, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium), whereas others can be toxic (lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminium). The quality of many foods depends on the concentration and type of minerals they contain, including their taste, appearance, texture and stability.

What is Resultant Atta?
Are Wheat Atta, Chakki Atta, and Resultant Atta different flours?
How Wheat Atta, Chakki Atta, and Resultant Atta are different?
Answer: Atta and Resultant Atta are the products obtained by milling or grinding wheat. Atta as defined in the Rules is the direct product obtained by milling or grinding the wheat. The Resultant Atta is not directly obtained merely by milling or grinding the wheat. It is obtained generally in the process of preparing the Maida or Suji or Rawa. In other words, what remains out of preparing the Maida and Suji from wheat is the Resultant Atta. It is the milling product that is obtained after the removal of pure maida and bran during the regular wheat milling process. Atta and Resultant Atta are not the same things just as Maida or Atta or Suji or Rawa are not the same things. (source)
Resultant atta (produced by blending various flour streams in roller mills) contained less protein, ether extractives, and ash than whole wheat flour (atta) produced in a chakki (disc mill). The starch damage in whole wheat atta (13.3-19.1%) was nearly double than that in resultant atta and indicated greater severity of grinding in chakki. The chapatti water absorption, as well as farinograph water absorption and dough development time, were significantly higher for chakki atta. Dough based on resultant atta had higher resistance to extension and extensibility than dough based on atta. Chapattis made from chakki atta were better than those from resultant atta, in eating quality and flavour. (source)
Comparison of Specifications of Whole-Wheat Flour and Resultant Atta.
Comparison of Characteristics of Whole-Wheat Flour and Resultant Atta.
The higher water absorption capacity of whole-wheat flour is attributed to its greater damaged starch content. The resultant atta has 1.5 times as much thiamin and riboflavin and twice as much niacin as that of whole-wheat flour. (See NIACIN | Properties and Determination; RIBOFLAVIN | Properties and Determination; STARCH | Structure, Properties, and Determination; THIAMIN | Properties and Determination.)
Whole-wheat flour, obtained from medium-hard aestivum wheat, and with the quality characteristics listed in Table 2, is suitable for chapati-making. The dough should show an alveograph stability value of 100–200 mm, a strength of 15–20 × 10−4 m2, and an extensibility of 0.20–0.27 m. source: sciencedirect
What is Wheat Atta, Atta Flour, Chakki Atta?
Answer: Atta/Ata (Urdu: آٹا; Hindi: आटा, Bengali: আটা, romanized: Āṭā) or Chakki Atta is wholemeal wheat flour, originating from the Indian subcontinent, used to make flatbreads such as chapati, roti, naan, paratha and puri. It is the most widespread flour in the Indian subcontinent. source: wikipedia
What is Chapati Flour, Roti Atta, Roti Flour?
Answer: Chapati (alternatively spelled chapatti, chappati, chapathi, or chappathi; pronounced as IAST: capātī, capāṭī, cāpāṭi), also known as roti, rotli, safati, shabaati, phulka, (in East Africa) chapo, and (in the Maldives) roshi, is an unleavened flatbread originating from the Indian subcontinent and staple in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, East Africa, Arabian Peninsula and the Caribbean. Chapatis are made of whole-wheat flour known as atta, mixed into dough with water, oil (optional), salt (optional) in a mixing utensil called a parata/paratha, and are cooked on a tava (flat skillet).
It is a common staple in the Indian subcontinent as well as amongst expatriates from the Indian subcontinent throughout the world. Chapatis were also introduced to other parts of the world by immigrants from the Indian subcontinent, particularly by Indian merchants to Central Asia, Southeast Asia, East Africa, and the Caribbean islands. source: wikipedia
Thus the Wheat Flour used to make Chapati, Roti is also called as Chapati Flour, Roti Atta, Roti Flour in day-to-day life.
