Description

NutriMill Vital Wheat Gluten 16 oz

Grains like wheat, rye and barley naturally contain water soluble, highly elastic proteins called glutenin, or "gluten" for short. (And "vital gluten" is just another name for the same thing.) As yeast creates carbon dioxide gas within developing bread dough, it's the gluten in the dough that traps the bubbles, giving your bread the light texture everyone wants.

If your grain or flour doesn't have sufficient quality or quantity of this gluten protein to start with, you'll get brick bread—and everyone will hate it! If your bread hasn't been rising as well as you'd like, supplementing with a little additional vital wheat gluten powder is very likely to help dramatically. Amount used is 1/4 to 3/4 cup of vital wheat gluten per 10-12 cups of whole grain flour. The 16 ounce pouch has a zip closure that keeps the vital wheat gluten fresh between uses.

You may also be interested in gluten-free dough enhancer.

  • “If you want lighter, higher loaves of whole wheat bread, you need vital wheat gluten.”

  • Vital wheat gluten... AMAZING!!!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I've been baking whole grain breads for over forty years and have never had bread this great! I hesitated adding it with all the buzz about gluten but when I realized the small amount added to four loaves of bread I wasn't so concerned. I'll never bake bread without it! With the light texture of the bread it makes the best sandwiches ever! Grilled cheese... AMAZING! Thank you for a great product!

  • A "vital" part of our bread recipe
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Our bread flour is actually 1/3 Wheat/Spelt/Kamut which we mill together from grain. We batch make 5-6 loaves at a time and get a lighter texture and great crumb using Vital Wheat Gluten. BTW, we got our mill 10+ years ago from Pleasant Hill. Great people and helpful.

  • Great Product
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I had a friend teach me how to make homemade wheat bread about ten years ago. She got me started with this product, and I have used it ever since. It helps my bread be softer like "Wonder bread" and it rises well without big holes at the top. The Gluten keeps well in the freezer for years. I can wholeheartedly recommend this product.

  • Helps to produce a lighter higher loaf
    By on - Verified Buyer
    With vital wheat gluten your breads will be lighter and rise higher even when using heavy whole grains and seeds added. I wouldn't bake without it.
