A food, made from wheat gluten, which is rich in protein and is used in many vegetarian dishes. It has a firm, chewy, meat-like texture and a neutral flavor. The neutral flavor allows it to take on the flavor of the food it is added to. Seitan is available in square or rectangle wrapped cakes in the refrigerator section of Asian markets and health food stores. It is also sold in powdered form, called wheat gluten, which is mixed with water when used, but it does not have the same chewy texture of the packaged seitan.
