White flour refuser

Hi guys, I made an apple cake for a party yesterday and mixed in wholewheat flour with the white as I'd been told one attendee had requested a wholewheat rather than white flour cake. When it came to eat the cake this particular lady asked what flour had been used. I told her it was a mix of both and she said she couldn't eat it and put it on the side (no apology or explanation)
Could she have had a condition that means she can't eat white flour? I would have thought that if you can have whole wheat you can have white flour too...? Or am I wrong...?

No idea about whether she could or couldn't but if a wholewheat was requested why didn't you make a wholewheat cake instead of a mix?

Because I was in a rush and only had wholewheat bread flour to hand, which I thought might ruin the cake if I used that on its own!

Being a twat?

White flour is wholemeal flour with stuff taken out. It isn't a different thing.

It makes some people constipated

She is one attendee - why is she dictating what everyone else can and can't have. It can't be an allergy there might be other reasons but for one attendee not everyone

More fool her. Apple cake made with partly wholemeal is vastly nicer and more digestible than 100% white or 100% wholemeal.

I doubt that there's any condition that means you can eat 100% wholemeal, but cannot eat any white at all.

Oh wait, there is such a condition: Precious Twattery.
