I have to agree with BILBY4. It is one of the most highly processed soy products. I tend to stay away from it. Thankfully I have a Trader Joes that carries organic tempeh and organic tofu so I will use those. I recently found organic sprouted tofu and can't wait to try that this weekend.

This is the most highly processed of all soy foods. I avoid it because after I read how it's made I felt a bit horrified, frankly. If there's a vegan equivalent of pink slime, this is it. Alan p.s. sorry about the analogy :-(

With me just recently venturing into trying tvp. An thourrely enoying it. I became more interested in the nutrition part of it. I reckon my thought was this stuff made such wnderful tacoe it cant be good for me lol. You know how the saying goes some things are to good to be true. Well it seems in this case it is just as good for you as it looks and tast. Oh yea im talking after its cooked. Like tofu among other things if not cooked properly its not good. Any way i found a page that breaks down tvp nutrition.... www.livestrong.com/article/342609-tv p- nutrition/
