Seitan Seitan is a chewy, protein-rich food made from hard winter wheat that resembles meat in texture and taste. Also called wheat meat, seitan is made by making dough out of wheat flour and water, kneading it to develop the protein (called gluten), while rinsing away the starch and bran. After this process, only the gluten remains. It is then simmered in water or vegetable stock that has been seasoned with soy sauce to produce a chewy, firm, meat-like food. Seitan can be sliced, diced, or ground and cooked in a variety of ways. Originating in Asia, seitan refers specifically to wheat gluten that has been cooked in soy sauce. Loosely translated, the Japanese word seitan means “is protein.” Seitan is called kofu in China.
