English: Gluten is a protein found in wheat and related grains, which provides elasticity in bread. A significant portion of the population have an allergic reaction to the protein, which has prompted the production of gluten-free food products. The protein is conversely used as a substitute for animal protein in some vegan foods, and has been consumed historically in Asia as seitan. Bakers will add extra gluten to bread, or use high-gluten wheat, for some products, to improve their texture.
