Soy Protein (TVP)
Textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a type of soy protein that can be used in place of meat. It makes the perfect meat substitute for vegetarians, and can also be used as a meat extender for ground beef and other dishes. Our soy protein is packed with 52g of protein per serving. Also known as textured soy protein (TSP), this is a very versatile ingredient that will absorb the flavor of anything you cook with it. It is delicious for making vegetarian or vegan versions of meatloaf, chili, tacos, meatballs, and sloppy joes. Textured vegetable protein is a nutritious, low-fat substitute for meat-based foods.
Textured vegetable protein also goes by the names texturized vegetable protein, texturized soy protein, textured soy protein, TVP, and TSP.
Cooking with Textured Vegetable Protein
Textured vegetable protein is made from soy flour that has been defatted by extracting the soybean oil. It can be used to make vegetarian burgers, burritos, ground beef, and other kinds of meat. TVP/TSP can also be used as a low-fat and less expensive meat extender or stretcher in place of meat. Its neutral flavor allows it to absorb the flavors of ingredients you cook it with.
To rehydrate TSP for use in recipes, combine equal amounts of TSP and liquid, such as water or broth. Using a hot liquid to speed up the rehydration process, the TSP should be ready for use within 10 minutes. Squeeze out any excess liquid from the soy protein. Use it in place of meat in your dishes and follow the recipe as you normally would. Once rehydrated, textured soy protein will last in the refrigerator for only a few days so be sure to consume it quickly.
Health Benefits of Textured Vegetable Protein
TVP is a complete protein because it provides all of the essential amino acids. This makes it a great supplement for vegan and vegetarian diets. With 52 grams of protein per serving, TVP is excellent as a post-workout protein source and helps you meet your daily protein intake. Soy protein is also a rich source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and insoluble fiber supports a healthy digestive system. The combination of protein and fiber makes textured vegetable protein a satisfying base for any meal. Textured soy protein is also high in minerals such as calcium and iron. Enjoying more soy protein in your diet is a healthy, low-fat way you can increase your nutrient intake.

“the product showed up super quick... just two days after ordering it. The communication from your company to let me know when it was shipped, the tracking number, and even the arrival of the product was very nice. I like to know the status of my order. I have referred a few of my friends/family to your company to help make their grocery bill less by purchasing wholesale.”
