What are the differences between white flour and wheat flour?

I need to understand the advantages of using wheat flour for my baking.

Wheat flour contains more fiber, which helps digestive health. It also has fewer calories per serving, due to the fiber content. It may not taste the same to those familiar with white flour.

Nutritionally, wheat flour is better for you, but it does not rise as well in baking. Ultimately, it will depend on what you are baking. Breads can certainly use wheat flour, but you will still need to alter your recipe.

White flour has been processed more, therefore making it less healthy. Wheat flour hasn't been as processed, which will make for a healthier dish.
