This loaf ( which I love) indicates a whopping 31 grams of protein per serving. I can's see from the ingredients how this can be so. I don't think they are lying, I am just wondering. Any thoughts?

I love this, by the way.

    it's the vital wheat gluten that's high in protein. http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/c...

      Thank you. I bake with vital wheat gluten but had no idea about that.

        Yup. All the field roast "sausages" are also really high in protein.

          that is good to know. Thanks, I will.

          Probably if I liked seitan I would have realized the answer to my OP, but I never have .

            Their regular sausages are of course always available- my stubborn omni parents even like those!

              I should try them. Since we are omnivore we usually eat chicken sausages from a nearby farm, but alternatives are great and most of our friends are veg or vegan or pescatarian.
              Thanks
