Gluten Free? Not today. Vital Wheat Gluten, also known as the Nemesis of Gluten Free, is derived from the protein found in wheat. It gives shape, volume and elasticity to baked goods.
For a little insight into how Organic Vital Wheat Gluten is made, the wheat flour is first hydrated to activate the gluten, then further processed to remove everything but the gluten. This is then dried and ground again into a powder. Popular amongst vegans, Vital Wheat Gluten is combined with water and spices to make the “wheat meat” known as seitan. When mixed with water, it becomes a sticky, elastic dough with a very chewy, meat-like texture. It can also be added to any bread recipe to enhance texture and protein content.
