Wheat gluten is made from the protein of the wheat berry plant. Mix wheat gluten into yeast bread recipes to give the bread a bouncy, voluminous texture. Wheat gluten helps the dough retain gas and steam while the bread is baking and gives it a fluffy rise. If you’re looking to get your home baked bread on par with the professionals, wheat gluten can help you level up. Wheat gluten is also a binding agent added to recipes for meatballs, meatloaf, vegetarian or vegan burgers and even tofu.
How to Use Wheat Gluten to Make Seitan
Wheat gluten is essential for making seitan, a popular meat substitute in vegetarian cuisine. Mix wheat gluten with desired spices (nutritional yeast, garlic and salt come recommended) and add water. Mix and then knead dough into a ball. Bake or steam the dough to yield meat-like and flavorful seitan.
