What do you guys think of Vital Wheat Gluten? I started eating some "Unchicken" that's really high in protein and low in everything else (carbs, fats, etc.). Just wondering if there is anything bad about eating too much of Vital Wheat Gluten?

Could develop a wheat gluten allergy eventually. Also don't really need all that protein in such a processed unnatural form. I wouldn't eat it more than 2 or 3 times per week.

Couldn’t you develop an allergy to anything over time? Is wheat gluten a complete protein? I also wouldn’t think it would be any more processed then soy. But then again I don’t know.

I dont think wheat is a complete protein, it also is very low in the digestibility scale...or something like that.

Wheat is a greater allergy risk than most foods. Soy is also a risk actually. (I'm slightly allergic to soy.) I've never heard of anyone becoming allergic to beans, lentils, rice, quinoa, fruits, etc, etc most foods.

Complete protein really shouldn't be a concern for anyone eating in a remotely healthy manner.

I know that wheat is linked to depression. Google it! :D
