Textured Vegetable Protein

What is Textured Vegetable Protein?

Textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a versatile protein derived from soybeans.

It’s made by extracting the oil from soybeans, then processing the remaining defatted soy flour into various shapes and sizes.

TVP is often used as a meat substitute or extender due to its high protein content and low cost. It is also noted for its ability to mimic the texture of meat when rehydrated. It’s available in different forms such as granules, flakes, chunks, and strips.
