Dear Dr. Boli: My husband came home from the grocery store with something called “whole-grain white” bread. What is it? I always thought white bread was bread with the bran removed, and whole-grain bread was brownish. —Sincerely, Mrs. M. W. Prattle, Mt. Oliver (city).

Dear Madam: “Whole-grain white” bread is made from wheat specially bred to have no color and texture, even when the bran is still present. In other words, what you have in your kitchen is colored bread passing for white.
