TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)
TVP (textured vegetable protein) is also commonly called textured soy protein. Basically, it’s a dehydrated soy product made by extracting the oil from soybeans. Plain, reconstituted TVP is essentially flavourless but has a “meaty” texture that makes it a great substitute vegetarian adaptations of traditional meat-based recipes. You can also buy flavoured TVP products like fake bacon-bits.
