• How Seitan is made

    Seitan was developed by buddhist monks centuries ago.
    In modern food production, processes are of course highly automated
    and have a much larger scale than in the monastery –
    but the basic steps have not changed.

  • Wheat grains are ground into flour…
  • The flour is mixed with water…
  • … and kneaded.
  • The kneading separates the starch from the flour.
  • This process is repeated…
  • … until almost exclusively wheat protein is left.
  • Cooked with herbs, spices, and other ingredients…
  • … we get Seitan.
    Enjoy!
