Q: Are vital wheat gluten and wheat gluten the same thing? A bread recipe specifically calls for 'Vital Wheat Gluten.' My neighborhood mill only has 'Wheat Gluten'. They could not tell me if there is a difference.

Editor: Yes, the two names are used interchangeably. Sometimes seitan is also called wheat gluten because it is made from vital wheat gluten, water, and spices, but when talking about bread recipes, vital wheat gluten flour is what is used.
