Zen Shofu Japanese wheat starch  is one brand. Oddly enough it's used in
book and paper preservation and archives.
Nori is another.
One site gives it as ungluten wheat starch (tang mien fun).
Mine came from one of the baking catalogues. It has been repackaged, so
I am unsure where. I buy odd flours and weird things at times.
