Seitan (wheat gluten)

Most commonly called “wheat meat,” seitan is made from wheat gluten. Made by kneading the bran and starch out of flour, raw seitan is rather bland, so most commercial brands are simmered in savory broth before sale. A wonderful source of protein, it is low in calories and fat and is very popular in Oriental “mock meat” dishes as well as in hearty stews and casseroles.
