Organic Textured Vegetable Protein
Our Organic textured vegetable protein, also known as TVP, is the star of a vegan pantry. The incomparable texture of our coarse-grained TVP is great for making meatless recipes, such as lasagna or chili, while avoiding the artificial additives and flavour enhancers found in the ground meatless products available in grocery stores. Its rather neutral taste makes it ultra-versatile to use in soups or sauces and provides an essential protein supplement. You can also use it in your chewy granola bar recipes.
Our textured vegetable protein is made from dehydrated soybeans and is certified organic and GMO-free. Unlike other ochre or even golden TVPs, our organic textured vegetable protein does not contain any colouring agents. It is very nutritious, economical and is an excellent source of protein, fibre and iron. Its meaty texture is great for turning many popular recipes into nutritious, balanced vegan dishes. Since organic TVP comes in the form of dehydrated flakes, it must be rehydrated with a liquid, such as vegetable broth or a vegetable drink, before cooking.
Store in a cool and dry place.
Culinary Uses & Recipes
Before using TVP in your recipes, you must boil it in 2-3 times the volume of water (or better yet: use vegetable stock) to rehydrate it. Or you can soak it for 1 hour using the same amount of liquid. Use it to make delicious vegan cretons or a tasty protein filling for your tacos. Textured vegetable protein is also great to give your yogurt or smoothies a boost. You can also use it in a 1:1 ratio with your favourite flour to make cookies, muffins, banana breads and other desserts.
