Granulated gluten is a kind of vermicelli, made in some starch manufactories by mixing fresh gluten with twice its weight of flour, and granulating by means of a cylinder and contained stirrer, each armed with spikes, and revolving in opposite directions.

 Celiac Disease - Gluten Free Diet Information Center   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Celiac Disease (also known as coeliac, nontropical sprue, celiac sprue, gluten intolerant enteropathy, or gluten sensitive enteropathy) is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
Gluten is found mainly in foods, but is also found in products we use every day, such as stamp and envelope adhesive, medicines, and vitamins.
It can develop from infancy (as soon as gluten associated foods are consumed) or at any time after that in later life (even though you may not have experienced any previous effects through consuming wheat and gluten).

 Gluten in Chinese Herbs: Addressing the Concerns of Those with Celiac Sprue
For those attempting a gluten free diet, foods made with rye and barley must be avoided, and especially if they make up any significant part of a meal (thus, one can't replace wheat bread or breakfast cereal with a similar product made from these other grains).
For those whose condition is diagnosed relatively early, the gluten free or nearly gluten free diet allows for complete recovery; for those who have had the disease for decades and just now reduce their gluten intake, the extent of recovery of the intestinal lining may be limited.
For those who are seeking to avoid any exposure to gluten, the wheat and barley ingredients would be entirely avoided, while for those who wish to simply keep exposure to a minimum, these substances might be used if the quantity can be limited (i.e., they represent a small fraction of the formulation).

 DrKalish.com: Gluten Sensitivity
With sub-clinical gluten intolerance you can also safely eat any type of meat, poultry or fish, including chicken, turkey, beef, pork, lamb, tuna, salmon, etc. All vegetables and any type of fruit is o.k., as are all beans, except in some cases soybeans may be a problem.
Sub-clinical gluten intolerance is often confused with a medical condition called celiac disease, celiac sprue or non-tropical sprue, sometimes referred to as gluten enteropathy or gluten intolerance.
The reaction to gluten in celiac disease is similar to sub-clinical gluten intolerance, except as to the degree of intensity.

 SEITAN--THE VEGETARIAN WHEAT MEAT -- The Vegetarian Resource Group
I have had the most luck using high gluten flour or vital wheat gluten, although I have found that until you become familiar with the texture you are aiming for during the mixing and kneading process, the results will vary somewhat.
The added benefit of using this method is that you can flavor the gluten during the kneading process by adding herbs and spices of your choosing other than the traditional ginger and garlic.
If you choose to deep-fry the gluten, the fat content will jump from virtually zero to the number of grams in whatever oil is absorbed (at 4.5 grams per teaspoon).

 Gluten & Casein - Peptides from Casomorphin & Gliadorphin
Gliadorphin (or gluteomorphin) is a peptide derived from the wheat protein gluten.
We suspect that these peptides may also be elevated in other disorders such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and depression based on anecdotal reports of symptom remission after exclusion of wheat and dairy.
The peptides from gluten and casein are important because the react with opiate receptors in the brain, thus mimicking the effects of opiate drugs like heroin and morphine.

 Corn gluten meal and corn gluten hydrolysate for weed control
Studies with corn gluten meal have shown increased crabgrass control in the second year of a study on the same plot (Bingaman et al., 1998), and CGH likely has a similar effect in the second year of a study.
The results of these studies suggest that corn gluten meal may be used to control weeds in a vegetable transplant system, and that corn gluten hydrolysate may be used to control crabgrass and improve visual quality in turfgrass.
Corn gluten hydrolysate has an advantage with regard to its solubility, and it could be tested with other carriers that may improve its herbicidal activity in the field.

 how_baking_works
Sugar tenderizes (and of course makes it sweet) because it prevents the flour from forming gluten (gluten is formed when wheat flour is mixed with water or moisture).
Water and milk enhance the development of gluten and/or gelatinization of starch in the flour or the setting of the structure (baking) and thus serve as a toughener.
They also shorten the length of the gluten strands when the flour is stirred with that moisture (that's why they're called "shorteners"), preventing a tough baked good or tenderize.
