Gluten?

Hi everyone! I came across a recipe that calls for just "gluten". With so much gluten-free stuff these days, my search for gluten on amazon came up with way too many results and I can't find just gluten.

Any tips on what brand or product name I should look for to find "just" gluten?

(I'm not hating on gluten free stuff! please don't take it that way. My brother is celiac so I really really appreciate all the gluten free foods on the market these days!)

    Some kind of Chinese/Japanese cuisines? Gluten is a pretty important ingredient in many sub-Chinese cuisines.

    Can you tell us exactly what you want to use the gluten for? Then, it may help us to find the correct products.

      1. If it's a Chinese recipe, it's probably canned wheat gluten. If it's a bread recipe, it's vital wheat gluten, which is available at many supermarkets.

        1. Another option it could be is seitan- made from vital wheat gluten to form a faux meat kind of neutral flavored product.
