I'm not sure what the difference would be with malted wheat but torrified wheat is made from unmalted wheat.
Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing but I'm also a lawyer: The Kielich Law Firm

Torrified wheat is not malted. It is made from unmalted wheat berries. They are just heated. I saw a Youtube of a guy who did his in a popcorn popper. Heated until brown and aromatic, but not popped
