Gluten

Is an elastic, sticky substance that results when certain proteins in flour, namely glutenin and gliadin, are mixed with a liquid. Kneading activates gluten development. Prior to mixing and kneading the gluten does not exist. When the gluten in dough is properly kneaded, a strong and highly developed gluten network forms which trap the carbon dioxide that is produced during fermentation.
