Default Torrified wheat vs malted wheat..what's the difference?

So I have two recipies for an ale I've wanted to brew ever since I started brewing: Double Dragon.

One recipe was in a recent Brew mag, which calls for malted wheat, another was one I found online, which calls for torrified wheat.

What's the difference between the two? I ask because my LHBS carries malted wheat but not torrified, which I would have to order online.

Thanks!

Nick

Responding as your header reads, your actual post says malted twice
They are very similar profiles, to me the torrified has less malt character and more head retention characteristics. Malted wheat as being it is malted seems to add a little more color and malt flavor.
Hope this helps.
Others will probably jump in with more detail on the differences

Doesn't malted wheat add head retention as well?

Yes it does. Adds body as well.
