The jar I have on hand right now (Spectrum brand) says

it's refined, organic, (not extra virgin) for medium high heat up to 365 degrees. Maybe it depends on the brand and how it's made?

Interesting about the refined wheat products having the bran and germ removed. I've heard the whole wheat pasta helps keep sugar levels down, compared to regular pasta. I tried it once and didn't like the taste. But, if it is true, I will start using it, regardless, since my husband loves pasta and is diabetic. Even a half a cup of the stuff sends his blood glucose levels through the roof, despite large amounts of protein served with it.

Thanks for the info, WildSatchmo. Appreciate it.
