Default rahr red wheat malt

I want to make a Belgian wit and have lots of rahr red wheat malt. Can I use that? Is there a difference between that and white wheat malt?

I have not experienced any discernable differences between red and white wheat. They lend both the same SRM. Red wheat is said to be slightly more flavorful, but I tend to use <8% of it in my IPAs, which is negligible as far as flavor is concerned for such a hop heavy beer. Perhaps someone can chime in who regularly brews Wit's and uses much more wheat than I am using.

I have brewed both weiss and dunkelweiss with red wheat instead of the white. I couldn't tell any difference.
