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.

By Cindy L. in IN on 5/25/2016 - Verified BuyerI'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!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Henrick Z. in IL on 4/13/2016 - Verified BuyerOur 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.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?

By Joyce B. in CA on 7/4/2017 - Verified BuyerI've used this in my 7 grain breads and it makes a huge difference! Without it, it's rather dense, but adding it gives it a little lightness without the "store-bought wheat bread" texture.Was this review helpful to you?

John, a flick of the zip-lock closure over the sink should clear that little bit of powder out, and you'll be good to go. Thanks for your review!Was this review helpful to you?
By Melinda M. in TX on 12/24/2016 - Verified BuyerThe taste was good when I made whole wheat bread but it was too dense. This really helped with lifting the bread and making it rise more, too. Pleased with this purchase.Was this review helpful to you?
