Hi Wal

It makes it chewier and more elastic and helps bind more water, it needs to be really well kneaded, ideally machine knead unless you need a work out? :lol:

Hope this helps regards Gary.

Hiya Gary, thanks, what I wanted to know is what exactly is it when it says add 2 table spoons of gluten.

Hi Wal

Its gluten flour about 70% protein, you should be able to get it from health shops, try vitaminsuk.com if no luck elsewhere.
