So, what is por?

Por is a protein-rich food ingredient that has been used in traditional Chinese cuisine for centuries. It is made by fermenting soybeans with the help of a specific type of mold called Aspergillus oryzae. The fermentation process breaks down the proteins into smaller, more digestible forms, making por a valuable source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Por has a savory, umami flavor and a slightly grainy texture that makes it a great meat substitute in dishes like stir-fries, soups, and stews. It is also rich in minerals like calcium, iron, and zinc, as well as vitamins B1, B2, and B6. Por can be found in various forms, including dried, powdered, and compressed blocks. It is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes and is a great addition to any plant-based diet.
