So, what is textured vegetable protein?

Textured vegetable protein, commonly known as TVP, is a high-protein, plant-based ingredient made from soy flour or concentrate. It has a meat-like texture when hydrated and is often used as a meat substitute in vegetarian and vegan dishes. TVP is low in fat and calories, making it a popular choice for those watching their weight. It is also a good source of fiber and essential amino acids, which are important for building and repairing muscle tissue. TVP can be found in various forms, including chunks, flakes, and granules, and is versatile enough to be used in a wide range of recipes, from chili to tacos to spaghetti sauce.
