Unmalted wheat that has been heated up and 'popped' sorta like popcorn. This gelatinizes the starches so that they are available for conversion. It's used in british ales and belgian wits. It must be mashed and it's a pain to mill. For the most part it can be used interchangably with flaked wheat.

When I substitute flaked wheat for torrified I usually roast it in the oven a little. Torrified is know to give a "toasted" flavor to beer. My LHBS also swears that it's the worst for attracting bugs. Probably a good idea to store it long term in the freezer.
