Vital Wheat gluten is one of my essentials for bread making. I am a huge fan. You can find it in the baking, food storage or organic sections of the grocery store. In Utah Maceys and Whole Foods are the easiest places to find it, but Walmart and Smiths carry it on occasion. Vital wheat gluten will make your bread so much more smooth, soft and wonderful.

Vital Wheat Gluten. Gluten is the natural protein portion of the grain and is separated from whole wheat with pure water. It is responsible for the stretchiness of dough and for the shapes that baked goods hold.

I promise that your breads will be softer, lighter and you will never go back to baking without it.
