KING ARTHUR FLOUR - VITAL WHEAT GLUTEN TIPS

Category:    Bread
Yield:1 servings
 
 
  "One of the most frequently asked questions of us here at King Arthur Flour
  is, 'What is gluten?'  Gluten is an element of the wheat berry that
  contains two special proteins, gluten in and gliadin. When you are making
  bread, and you add liquid to the flour, you get these two proteins in
  business.  They start to interact and form a web which traps the carbon
  dioxide that the yeast is giving off. This web is developed during the
  kneading process.  Wheat is the only grain which contains gluten."
  
  "To use gluten, we have found that adding a tablespoon for each cup of
  flour called for in the recipe will increase the rise in the bread from 25%
  to 30%.  The proper way to measure the gluten is to put 1 tablespoon of the
  gluten in your measuring cup and then spoon the flour into the cup on top
  of the gluten. Level off the flour with the back of a knife."
