Is there any information on Seitan? I know its wheat, but is this a good meat replacement for A's?

don't use any seitan wheat based and I am sure it must contain other avoids.. but I do eat tempeh and tofu.
What are you trying to make?

The only tempeh I've found locally has wheat in it too!  Which doesn't really matter now b/c I don't eat soy products either

I used to make seitan, before I knew better...  

It contains protein, yes, but it is made by rinsing away the starches from the wheat flour leaving mainly the wheat gluten behind which is then formed into dumplings and boiled in water or broth. Definitely not a food for the gluten-sensitive... which is like... almost everyone???

Andrea - I can't think of the brand name off hand.  I've checked at Whole Foods, Kroger, and Blooming Foods (local co-op). I do know that when I checked the co-op I looked at tempeh bacon - maybe it had flavoring or something with wheat, not sure though.  Either way, I can't have soy

Plain tempeh is just fermented soybeans. Once they process it into "fake bacon" they often add other ingredients. I used to eat that stuff (how else can you get a kosher egg, cheese, and bacon sandwich) but now I know better: those fake meats often contain dairy products, highly processed soy protein (from GMO soy), corn syrup, artificial colors (the red part of the "bacon"), etc. Those foods are pure junk.

Thanks all. I am an A- without gluten issues. I was looking at some new receipes for vegan meals. Seitan is just gluten, sea salt, spices, soy sauce from Upton Naturals.
I am always looking for something new! Get bored easily. I can do soy, no problems. Lola I did check the database, could not find Seitan. Is there another name?  New at this and not able to get my head around vegetables without adding meat.  So I do soy, tempeh and lot of beans that are allowed an A. Changing a lifetime of thinking will take some time to get used to.

Gluten flour is listed as neutral for A secretors and as an avoid for A non-secretors. Seitan is basically cooked gluten flour.

Thanks Ruthiegirl. Haven't done the secreator test yet, but suppose I am secreator. Which would also make me a Genotype teacher.  Have the test will do shortly. Then will know for sure.

Please, no one of any type eat seitan. It is total inflamatory cr*p. It is basically wheat gluten, as has been said.  There are such better protein sources for all types. As an A, instead of seitan, please opt for tofu or tempeh.  If you can't do soy products, add some organic turkey, some wild salmon, or some nuts, seeds or beans for protein, or some fabulous nutritional yeast. Shoot--gotta go, they are setting off illegal fireworks across the street again. Bye!

If a complex item isn't listed, type check each of the individual ingredients.

I agree that the biggest challenge of this, or any other lifestyle change, is changing the mind-set that says what a meal or menu plan should look like - and how to incorporate the changes.  For As, my recommendation is to get a good beans (legumes) and vegetables cookbook and get comfortable using it...  There are so many ways to create great meals, from simple to very complex...
