Points of Interest

Textured vegetable protein (TVP), also known as textured soy protein (TSP), is a meat substitute made from defatted flour, a by-product of making soybean oil. TVP has little flavour of its own and needs to be rehydrated and flavoured (both can be done in the same step), then added to cooking.


TVP is produced from soy flour after the soybean oil has been extracted, then cooked under pressure, extruded and dried. TVP, when reconstituted, makes an excellent substitute for meat in sauces, soups, stews, burgers and chili.
