== What is gluten? ==

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and some related grains. Gluten makes baked goods stretchy and flaky (croissants and puff pastry are made with high-gluten flour).
 +

Gluten is not the same thing as starch. If you took a pound of wheat flour and mixed with water to make a thick dough, in an hour or two you could gradually wash away the starch under a gentle trickle of running water. You would be left with about 2 ounces of a rubbery substance: that's the gluten!
