Lotus Textured Soy Protein. GMO Free. Ideal for your vegetarian and vegan creations, such as in curries, casseroles, stews, burgers and soups. Made from defatted soy flour, it will absorb approximately 3 times its weight in water. I have served this many times to meat eaters, who were certain I was serving them mince. When I told them it was TVP or textured vegetable protein, they were surprised. TVP mince is made up of irregular shaped caramel coloured particles . It has a bland cereal - nutty flavour and a pleasant aroma. Upon hydration, it will have a chewy texture. Packed in Australia from imported ingredients (India). 200 grams
