Answer:

Gluten can be removed from wheat flour by rinsing bread dough and kneading it until all of the starch is removed. Gluten helps make bread elastic and provides it with the chewy texture it has when eaten. For this reason, gluten that is removed from dough is sticky and feels much like chewing gum.
