Flour / Wheat in Poland

I would like to buy whole wheat flour for making bread here in Kraków, but I am not sure which type to choose from the store shelf. I understand Graham, but there are several varieties at my local Tesco about which I have no clue. Here are the names:

Góralski Ciemny
Litewski
Niedzicki
Pieniński
Sądecki

Can anyone help me with descriptions or English translations? Are any of these considered whole wheat?

Also, can anyone explain the "Typ" that is listed on each package of flour? I see Typ 500, 550, etc., but have no idea what this means. Thanks!

This is a weigh of ashes (550 grams) that remains after burning the flour sample. I think you need flour with higher value (850).

1050 or 1600 will give you a nice wheat bread.

1370 and 1740 is Rye

550 and 812 for "white" breads
