Bob's Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten is made from the protein found in the endosperm of the wheat berry, containing 75% to 80% protein. When combined with water it becomes highly elastic and has a taffy-like texture. A small amount added to yeast bread recipes improves the texture and elasticity of the dough, helps retain the gas and steam from baking, and gives more volume to the baked bread. It can be especially helpful for baking breads made with whole grain flours and coarse cereals. Vital wheat gluten is often used by commercial bakeries to produce light textured breads, and can easily put the home bread baker on a par with the professionals.

Vital wheat gluten is also a staple ingredient for meat and meat substitutes. It acts as a binder for meatballs, meatloaf, veggie burgers and tofu alike. Vital wheat gluten is the main ingredient in the popular meat substitute, seitan. To make seitan, mix vital wheat gluten with spices and then add water to make a dough. When the gluten dough is steamed, baked, boiled, or otherwise cooked, it becomes chewy with a very meat-like texture. See our package for an easy and delicious Basic Seitan recipe, as well as directions for a classic and hearty Honey Oatmeal Bread.

I cook mainly gluten free (by choice) and use A LOT of Bob's Red Mill products. I love using this product for baking bread, as I find a lot of gluten free choices leave the bread flat and sometimes almost lifeless.

Bob's Red Mill products are awesome. I have tried many and they are all good. This is great if you need to cook gluten free without losing taste.
