Vital Wheat Gluten
Honeyville's Vital Wheat Gluten is extracted from a naturally occurring protein found in wheat that can greatly improve your baked goods. The gluten in wheat flour is responsible for making the dough rise and have a moist, light texture after baking. Adding this wheat gluten helps your loaves of bread that use low-gluten flours such as rye, oat or buckwheat rise to be light and fluffy. Wheat flour does contain natural gluten, but not often to the extent desired. This is why many pastry chefs and bakers benefit from the aid of vital wheat gluten; the effect on the bread is remarkable! Just adding a tablespoon or two transforms any bread into a picture-perfect, light-textured loaf that will have the neighbors begging you for your secret technique.
Shelf-Life: Vital Wheat Gluten will store for 7 to 10 years in a sealed #10 can (oxygen absorber included) under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place). Once opened, it has an average shelf life of 6 to 12 months. The 50 pound bag stores for 1 year in sealed packaging under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place).
Instructions: Depending on the quality of the flour, the recommended usage is between 3% and 5% of the total weight of the required amount of flour. For 1 bread loaf, add 1 or 2 tablespoons to the flour.
