The Profile

Vital Wheat Gluten

Vital wheat gluten is made from wheat berry protein, more specifically, it’s found naturally in the endosperm. Just a small amount may be added to bread formulas to provide additional strength, dough structure & elasticity. When starch is washed away from wheat flour with water, the gluten is activated & then processed so that all that remains is that very sticky insoluble mass. The gluten is then dried & ground. It’s particularly helpful when working with whole grain flours as it provides the extra lift needed to prevent breads from being too dense or a small amount may be added to recipes that use all purpose or bread flour to aide in bread texture.

How To Use Vital Wheat Gluten

A variety of bread doughs can benefit tremendously when just a small amount of vital wheat gluten is added but since it has a high protein content, it’s used to make a meat substitute called seitan. Although it is a bit difficult to find in local markets, several internet sources & fine cook stores keep it in stock regularly.
