The product is manufactured by hydrating dense wheat flour to activate the gluten and then altering the hydrated mass to eliminate the starch, extracting only the gluten. The gluten is then dried and ground back into a powder. 

 

Applications

VWG is primarily used to optimize flour mixtures and cake mixes. In a year with low protein content in the European Wheat crop, the demand for VWG has never been so high. 

Vital wheat gluten is a great source of plant-based proteins. It also serves as a meat substitute in vegetarian cuisines and is especially recognized as a meat substitute known as seitan. 

 

Vital wheat gluten is also used in the production of pet food, as well as in feed for fish, calves, and piglets. 

 

 

Technical aspects 

The product can be utilized as a binder, thanks to its great elasticity and texture-improving qualities. It allows the retention of gas and steam, adding volume and light texture to baked goods rich in whole grain flours or coarse cereals. Professional bakeries use vital wheat gluten to achieve fluffiness in sweet and savory products. 

 

Vital wheat gluten’s binding properties allow achieving a meat-like, chewy structure. The usage of vital wheat gluten allows the products to be composed and integrated in their shape and enables frozen products to hold their strength. It is soy-free with low amounts of fat and carbohydrates.
