I've been baking almost all our bread this year.
I want to start doing more whole wheat and whole grain breads but all the recipes I want to try call for vital wheat gluten.
So, I shopped at the 2 biggest grocery stores in my town this weekend but neither one had vital wheat gluten.
Then I turned to Amazon.com.
I found several sellers with gluten at good prices.
|I ordered this giant can Sunday evening and the friendly UPS delivery man brought it to my front door Tuesday afternoon. That is really fast I think.|
|Here's my ticket- just $12.59 - no delivery charge as it was covered with our Amazon Prime- for this giant can about the same size as a large can of coffee or canned fruit.|
I know gluten has a bad reputation and some people are allergic to it with really awful problems if they eat it.
But if you are not, then gluten added to your yeast baked goods makes them much lighter.
Vital wheat gluten also has 35 grams of protein in just a quarter cup.
