No, you don't have to rinse seitan made from
instant gluten/vital wheat flour/seitan mix.

The rinsing of gluten is the old-fashioned,
labor-intensive method of making seitan,
which entails making a dough of flour and
water, and soaking and rinsing continually
until you obtain a blob of raw gluten,
which is then cooked into seitan.

At one time it was pretty much the only way
to make seitan (aka gluten, wheatmeat, etc).

For anyone who wants to try doing it the
hard way, recipes are available.

BTW, this method also uses up a LOT of
water with all that rinsing. (Some of
the water can be reclaimed as a starchy
thickener for cooking.)


So, in other words, there is no need to rinse
your seitan before or after cooking.


Unless it is the aforementioned type of seitan.


Which it probably isn't.
