Bracha on wheat gluten

undefined

Rabbi Jonathan Blass

30 Cheshvan 5763
Question
What Bracha should be made on products whose main ingredient is wheat gluten, which is the protein of wheat, the starch having been removed?
Answer
Wheat gluten - the protein separated from wheat flour - is no longer considered wheat flour and therefore products made from it - for example meat substitutes, are not pastry products. The appropriate Bracha is "Shehakol".
