So, what is vetegluten?

Vetegluten, also known as wheat gluten, is a protein extracted from wheat flour. It is commonly used as a binding agent and texture enhancer in food products, especially in the manufacturing of vegan and vegetarian meat substitutes. Vetegluten has a high protein content, low fat content, and is an excellent source of essential amino acids. It is also commonly used in baking as a substitute for wheat flour, as it provides a chewy and elastic texture to bread and other baked goods. However, vetegluten is not suitable for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, as it contains gluten, a protein that can cause an adverse reaction in these individuals.
