Azure Farm Vital Wheat Gluten Flour
Gluten flour is a specially milled wheat flour which is high in gluten and low in starch. The flour is used in combination with other flours in specialty breads where a strong structure is needed. It is also what is used to make vegetarian “steaks” or burgers.

- Basic Instructions: Gluten flour, added to other flours in bread recipes, gives the dough extra elasticity and protein, resulting in a finer quality bread. When using gluten flour for this purpose use 1 Tbsp. or less per cup of other flour. Gluten flour can also be used to make “gluten steaks,” a meat alternative. These are made by mixing the gluten flour (1 cup) with cold water (3/4 cup), cutting the dough into slices and then boiling in broth one hour.
- Azure Farm is located in the foothills east of Mt. Hood with a fantastic view of the Cascades and farm land in the valleys below. This is wheat growing country where dry-land farming produces an abundance of soft white wheat and other grains. But what makes our farm different from most other wheat farms is our growing practices. We’ve been growing organically for over 25 years, and are attempting to go beyond basic “organic” (which only ensures which harmful things have not been used). We try to keep up with organic soil amendments that will actually improve our soil, and consequently improve the food itself.
- Any items with the Azure Farm label which are not grown on Azure Farm, are from farms which we know have been growing organically for many years, doing whatever they can to ensure healthy soil, so the food on your table is also healthy.
- Why go organic? Organic foods are grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Organic foods are not genetically modified. Organic foods are grown in soil that is nurtured, not treated... which means top soil, groundwater, rivers, lakes, streams, watersheds, fish & wildlife, and people are not compromised. Healthy food grows in healthy soil. You can often taste the organic difference!
