Quality Baking Supplies at Pleasant Hill Grain: Vital Wheat Gluten

Vital Wheat Gluten is a natural protein derived from wheat or wheat flour. Wheat gluten is the endosperm of wheat flour with the starch removed. Vital Wheat Gluten becomes very elastic when water is added. This sets it apart from all other vegetable proteins. Wheat gluten readily absorbs about twice its weight in water. This results in increased dough strength and shelf life or "vitality", hence the name "Vital Wheat Gluten." Vital Wheat Gluten is approved by the USDA for use as a dough strengthener, formulation aid, nutrient supplement increasing the protein level of the flour, processing aid, stabilizer and thickener, and texturizing agent. It is often used in specialty breads. Country of origin is U.S. or Australia, only.

Ingredients: 100% Vital Wheat Gluten

Processed in a plant
that also processes products containing milk, egg, soybeans, wheat, shellfish, fish oil, tree nuts, and peanut flavor. (Manufacturing equipment is cleaned and thoroughly sanitized before each new batch Vital Wheat Gluten is produced.)

Add 1-1/2 tsp of vital wheat gluten per cup of whole grain flour or 1/2 to 1/3 cup per 10-12 cups flour. Mix or sift well with the flour. The strength of the flour will determine how much Vital Wheat Gluten it needs. When making bread with bran, raisins, seeds, etc., you will need to increase the amount of Vital Wheat Gluten used. If too many large air bubbles form, cut back on the amount of Vital Wheat Gluten used. For use in auto-bakery recipes: Use 2-3 Tbsp according to desired performance.
