Vital wheat gluten is a natural protein source found in wheat and is a powerful flour that is almost pure gluten. Made from wheat flour that has had the gluten activated during a dehydrating process which removes all other ingredients except the gluten.
It has very little starch content and is a fantastic ingredient to make the dough very elasticated, resulting in perfect bakes time and time again. Vital wheat gluten is great for bread making particularly for regular flour replacements that have a low gluten content, such as rye, as it helps to increase the gluten content of the bake. It is equally as delicious as used in muffins, cakes and other bakes such as tarts and pastries where you work with yeast ingredients.
