~ Tempeh (Ragi Tempeh) Starter Spores is a Great Choice for Soy Fermentation and Making Homemade Tempeh ~
Tempeh soy cakes are a traditional Indonesian food made by fermenting soybeans with a starter culture. Traditional tempeh is a soybean cake that has a rich smoky flavor and aroma, with a firm nutty texture.
Tempeh or TPS is one of Indonesian traditional foods full of protein made by fermenting soybeans with the rhizopus culture mold spores. It is high in nutritional value, providing nutrients such as Protein, Riboflavin, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Copper, and Manganese. It is also low in Cholesterol and Sodium. If you live in Indonesia, you can buy tempeh starter easily. In the USA, buying the starter spores can be a bit difficult; however, to make tempeh is not too hard.
A meatless choice great for vegans or those looking for a healthy probiotic alternative for an animal based diet. Cooks up like 'bacon or steak' when sliced thin and fried. It is recommended not to eat tempeh products raw. Soy should only be consumed after fermentation and not raw. The ragi tempeh spores will break down the soy
into an easy to consume product.
