What is Seitan?

Definition: Seitan

Seitan (pronounced "say-tahn") is a protein source made from the gluten of wheat that is often found in vegan, macrobiotic, and East and Southeast Asian food. Also known as wheat gluten, wheat meat, or gluten, this wheat-based meat substitute is an alternative to soy-based products such as tofu and tempeh.
Like meat, seitan, which is often sold in Western health markets in strips and cubes, can be braised, deep-fried, grilled, or simmered in soups.
