So, what is weizengluten?

Weizengluten, also known as vital wheat gluten, is a highly concentrated protein derived from wheat. It is a versatile ingredient used in baking and cooking to improve the elasticity and rise of dough, and to add protein to vegetarian and vegan dishes. Weizengluten is made by extracting the gluten from wheat flour, leaving behind the starch. With a protein content of up to 75%, weizengluten is a popular ingredient for those looking to increase their protein intake. It has a chewy texture and nutty flavor, making it a popular meat substitute in vegetarian and vegan diets.
