Not apparently in ALL of the UK, I spent vacation a few years ago with a 
good friend who lived in Liverpool and she was the one who gave me the 
recipe for making Gram crackers and it used a Gram flour that consisted of 
whole wheat! One thing is becoming evident, and that is that there has been 
regional usage of the name "Gram flour" and with varying contents in many 
of the regions! It would be in all our interests if in the future one state 
what their "Gram flour" is made of.

Not suitable for what? I've been using whole wheat "Gram flour" to feed 
daphnia for years with excellent results!
