So, what is tarwegluten?

Tarwegluten, also known as wheat gluten, is a protein-rich ingredient derived from wheat flour. It is made by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch granules have been removed, leaving behind a sticky, elastic mass of gluten. Tarwegluten is commonly used as a meat substitute in vegetarian and vegan diets because of its chewy texture and ability to absorb flavors. It is also used as a thickener, binder, and stabilizer in various food products, including bread, pasta, and processed meats. Tarwegluten is a rich source of protein, containing up to 75% protein by weight, and is also high in essential amino acids.
