    gluten is what gives flour it's elasticity. You can buy pure gluten in the flour section or natural foods section of your grocery. Bob's Red Mill does it as well as others..and you can probably also find it on amazon. When you are working with whole wheat flour the gluten helps make the bread dough lighter...hope this helps, if not ask away!
