- Question: [Monday, 30th Nissan, 5781]
What blessing should be recited in non-grain products that contain gluten within their ingredients?
The gluten has the status of a Shehakol food. Practically, it is nullified to the main ingredient of the product and one should recite whatever blessing the main ingredient deserves.
Explanation: Gluten is the protein of the wheat and does not provide sustenance as does the flour. Therefore, it is not viewed as the main product of the wheat that deserves a special blessing of Mezonos or Hamotzi.
