Is gluten blé vegan?

Gluten blé, also known as wheat gluten, is a highly versatile and protein-rich ingredient derived from wheat. It is produced by washing wheat flour dough with water until the starch granules have been removed, leaving behind a sticky, elastic mass of gluten. Gluten blé is commonly used as a meat substitute in vegetarian and vegan diets, as well as in baking to provide structure and elasticity to dough. It is also used as a thickener in soups, sauces, and gravies. Although gluten blé is a valuable source of protein and essential amino acids, it should be avoided by individuals with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Gluten blé is a vegan food ingredient.
