Information @ a Glance

  • Wheat gluten, also called seitan, wheat meat, gluten meat, or simply gluten, is a food made from the gluten of wheat. It is made by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch dissolves, leaving insoluble gluten as a gummy mass, which is subject to further processing.
  • Gluten, the dough-forming protein of wheat flour, is the key to the unique ability of wheat to suit the production of leavened products. Gluten may be defined as the ‘cohesive, visco-elastic proteinaceous material prepared as a by-product of the isolation of starch from wheat flour’.
  • Gluten is proteins of the wheat. Gluten forms long molecules insoluble in water. This gives dough its characteristic texture and permits breads and cakes to rise because the carbon dioxide released by the yeast is trapped in the gluten superstructure.
  • Gluten is particular important in the manufacture of starch from wheat because gluten is a most valuable by-product representing half the turnover. In fact the starch is by some manufacturers considered the by-product and gluten the main product.
  • If the gluten is extracted and gently dried in hot air at moderate temperatures it maintains it's characteristics. If so it is designated "vital gluten". Vital gluten may be added as a dry powder to flour otherwise low in gluten and thereby improve the baking qualities of the flour.
  • Commercial gluten is dried to minimum 90% dry matter and a typical composition is: 70 - 80 % crude protein, 6 - 8 % crude lipids, 10 - 14 % carbohydrates, 0.8 - 1.4 % minerals.
  • Wheat gluten is very effective in binding meat chunks or trimmings together to form restructured steaks or chops and may be applied simply by dusting the meat pieces with dry gluten. It is an excellent binder in poultry rolls, canned “integral” hams and other nonspecific loaf-type products where it also improves slicing characteristics and minimizes cooking losses during processing and/or preparation.
  • The most common usage of gluten in western countries has traditionally been, and continues to be, in baked goods of various types. However, with an increasing awareness of wheat gluten’s unique structural and functional properties has come an expanding diversity of applications.
  • U.S. imports of EU wheat gluten represent approximately one-half of U.S. consumption. While in place, vital wheat gluten import quotas and
    financial assistance helped U.S. processors adjust to competitive pressures. U.S. domestic wheat gluten processors developed new
    strategies in response to foreign competition.
  • A portion of the growth in domestic gluten demand can be attributed to population growth and increased consumer preferences for “healthy” grain-based products (e.g., bagels). The demand for more (and varied) bakery products has therefore driven the demand for vital what gluten. Also, increased gluten availability from the EU, Australia, and other countries has driven down domestic prices and made the use of vital wheat gluten in commercial baking operations much more feasible in recent years.
  • The U.S. domestic vital wheat gluten industry consists of three manufacturers: Manildra Milling, ADM, and Midwest Grain Products. Historically, vital wheat gluten prices are relatively low (high) when supplies of high protein U.S. wheat are high (low).
  • Even with increased domestic demand for wheat gluten and limitations placed upon imports, the U.S. wheat starch/gluten industry remains a relatively tight market. With a significant portion of the domestic processing capacity yet to be utilized and a four-firm concentration ratio of nearly 100%, the industry provides limited access for potential market entrants.
