I don't know about
in the US, but in Canada whole wheat isn't the same as whole grain. All whole grain breads would be whole wheat, but not all whole wheat breads are made with the whole grain.
When wheat is milled in Canada, it's three parts (bran, endosperm and germ) are separated and then mixed to make the different types of flour (white, whole wheat, pastry...). Whole wheat flour sold in Canada may have a lot of it's germ removed. So 100% whole wheat bread would be missing a lot of vitamins and minerals compared to 100% whole grain bread that includes all parts of the wheat kernel.
Food labeling is very deceptive. Maybe at least in the US whole wheat does actually mean the whole grain is used.
