Chin Yeh mian jin: The perfect vegan substitute for meat!

Are you vegan, vegetarian, or simply looking for a meat-free alternative for your little cooking endeavors? Well, if so, then you’ll be surprised at our unique selection of Taiwanese seitan, also known as fried gluten. This remarkable ingredient dates back to ancient China - almost 1500 years ago! It is believed that in the 6th century, Buddhist monks discovered seitan and encouraged their followers to adopt a meat-free diet, offering a plant-based substitute to animal meat. The monks made this discovery by soaking wheat dough in water, removing all the starch, and leaving the remainder high protein wheat gluten. Seitan can be prepared by hand, just like the Buddhist monks used to, as well as by rinsing away the starch in the wheat dough, leaving only the high-protein gluten behind. When cooked, it closely resembles the texture of actual meat, making it extremely popular in vegetarian and vegan diets.

Whether you’re making your own seitan or purchasing a premade one, it always needs to be cooked before being used in recipes, but that might cause a little inconvenience.
