So, what is wheat % gluten?

Wheat gluten is a protein found in wheat that provides elasticity and structure to baked goods. It is a popular ingredient in vegetarian and vegan cooking as it can be used to create meat-like textures in dishes. Wheat gluten is also used as a binding agent in processed foods such as imitation meats and bread products. While wheat gluten is a good source of protein, it is not suitable for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance as it can cause digestive issues. Overall, wheat gluten is a versatile ingredient that adds texture and protein to many dishes.
