So, what is elastic?

Elastic food ingredients refer to those that are pliable and stretchy in nature. These ingredients are commonly used in the preparation of foods such as bread, pasta, and noodles. Gluten is a prime example of an elastic ingredient, providing the structure and chewiness to baked goods. Other examples include agar-agar, which acts as a gelling agent that can create a firm, flexible texture in desserts, and konjac flour, which when mixed with water, creates a gelatinous substance that can be used as a vegan substitute for gelatin in recipes. Overall, elastic ingredients play a vital role in achieving the desired texture and mouthfeel of many popular dishes.
