Thank you so much for your prompt reply! I had suspected it wasn't whole wheat, since it was so oddly silent on that point. I'm glad to have the suspicion confirmed. Have a great day!

durum wheat is just the type of wheat used for pasta.
To be the whole grain the package would need to say:
whole wheat flour

Are products made with durum wheat considered whole wheat? I can't tell from the packaging. It looks like the protein content is higher than in whole wheat, but the fiber content is lower.
