Would anyone help me understand how are Gluten free food are made? We have this bakery company that is willing to make free gluten food and even is willing to use a separate facility (to not let food contaminated with Gluten of course) But how exactly is the Gluten itself is removed from the flour in order to make bread? Is it by hand/manual or by special made machines? I heard it's done by special machines, assuming it's true, then where can I find companies that sell these machines? Pleas excuse my ignorance, I really would like to help our bakery company because we have many people who have this illness and it would be much easier for them to get free gluten food if we know how to make it. Not to mention for anyone with who can't tolerate Gluten.

P.S. I know I asked this before but I really need more detail about, thanks for your time. Illuminate me, how Gluten is separated from flour

It is my understanding that you cannot take gluten out of flour so gluten foods such as wheat, rye, and barley need to be avoided. Other grains such as corn, rice and quinoa are gluten-free unless they are processed in the same facility that processes wheat. Then the gluten from the wheat can contaminate the corn, rice, and quinoa.

I probably meant the dough of the flour when making bread for example. Sorry, English is not my first language and I rarely speak about food materials in English so I apologize.

Back to the topic: Well then, how they are made? Free Gluten food that is. Because for bread, for example, I heard it need special machines that separate the Gluten from the dough to make bread. If so, then where can I find companies that sell these special bakery machines?

Thanks for your time and sorry if I'm annoying anyone with my repeated question, but I really want to help bring free Gluten food here in where I live.

Mr. X, I don't have celiac disease but I saw your posts.  Here are two websites that might help you further.  One recommends substitutes for wheat flour and the other actually explains a process for separating gluten from the flour.  It seems rather difficult and time-consuming to do this process yourself but it might help.

Gluten can not be separated from white flour, or any type of wheat, rye, or barley.  Gluten free flours are always from rice, corn, soy, or other assorted grains, never wheat, rye, or barley.  When a bakery is willing to make gluten free foods, then they absolutely need a separate kitchen, best would be a separate building.
