So, what is hvetegluten?

Hvetegluten, also known as wheat gluten, is a natural protein extracted from wheat flour. It is a versatile ingredient that is often used in baking and cooking to improve the texture and elasticity of doughs and batters. Hvetegluten has a high protein content, making it a popular choice among vegetarians and vegans as a meat substitute. It is also a common ingredient in processed foods such as seitan and vegetarian sausages. However, people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should avoid consuming hvetegluten as it can trigger an immune response.
