So, what is isolated wheat protein?

Isolated wheat protein, also known as wheat gluten, is a highly concentrated source of protein derived from wheat. It is made by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch and soluble components are removed, leaving only the protein behind. This results in a fine, light-colored powder with a high protein content and a neutral flavor. Isolated wheat protein is a popular ingredient in the food industry, especially for vegan and vegetarian products, as it can provide structure, texture, and binding properties similar to meat. It is also used in sports nutrition, bakery, and confectionery products.
