Wheat Gluten

Wheat Gluten is an insoluble protein found in wheat flour.

Asian cooks have long isolated gluten by removing other starches from wheat dough and used the resulting dough in vegetarian cooking. Dishes featuring “mock chicken” or “mock duck” are often cooked with gluten. Although gluten itself has very little flavor, it readily absorbs the flavors of foods it is cooked with.
