What is gluten?

What is gluten? Gluten is a group of proteins found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. Gluten means “glue” in Latin, which is why it is called “gluten”. It sticks flour grains together when mixed with water. This feature allows gluten to create a sticky "web" that helps baked goods rise and give them their characteristic texture.
