|Vital Wheat Gluten|
And why use it? VWG is what gives you a beautiful loaf of bread. Just a few tablespoons per recipe is enough to improve the elasticity and volume of the dough as it rises. This in turn allows your bread to hold a beautiful shape and develop a great texture and crumb when baked. It can also improve the taste of home baked goods while extending their freshness. VWG is especially useful when you make breads using low gluten flours whole wheat flour, rye flour, and oat flour. You can also add it to gluten free that you may use for baking including amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, millet flour, and even cornmeal.
While VWG has only recently become accessible reasonably easily to home bakers. You can find it in the flour aisle of the supermarket, and most local coops, organic food stores and health food stores carry it. You can also order it online.
