What is seitan??
Seitan is the main ingredient we use to create our 'Vegan Fried Chicken'. It's a popular meat replacement found in many types of cuisine. It’s a staple ingredient in many Asian, Buddhist and vegetarian dishes and is also used to produce certain food items like mock duck.
“Seitan” is a word of Japanese origin, and when roughly translated, the seitan definition is “made of proteins.” It’s created by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch granules have been removed, leaving only the sticky insoluble gluten as an elastic, taffy-like mass. This mass is then cut into pieces and cooked before being eaten.
It’s quite dense, which makes it more similar to meat than other plant-based protein foods. Meanwhile, it has a neutral flavor and tends to absorb flavors well. You can easily bake, steam, sauté or simmer it to make vegan fajitas, kabobs, steaks, sandwiches and stews.
Is Seitan Healthy?
Seitan is a good source of protein and can be a quick and convenient way to help those on a vegan or vegetarian diet meet their protein needs. Protein is essential for everything from building muscle to repairing tissue and producing hormones, so getting enough in your diet is absolutely critical.
But is seitan good for weight loss? Because it’s high in protein but low in calories, seitan can help support satiety to keep you feeling full, which could help promote weight loss. In fact, high-protein diets have been shown to decrease levels of ghrelin, the hormone that’s responsible for stimulating hunger.
Seitan is also one of the few meat substitutes without soy. Many people prefer to avoid unfermented soy products like tofu because it can disrupt hormone levels and often comes from genetically modified crops.
If you have a wheat allergy, celiac disease or gluten intolerance, seitan is definitely out of the question as it is literally made from wheat gluten. If you have a sensitivity to gluten, eating foods like seitan can result in many adverse side effects such as bloating, diarrhea, fatigue and abdominal pain.
