I was hesitant to taste it because it looked like a pile of vomit, but with the seasonings & other ingredients, it smelled pretty good.
C. Pierce
This was a great way to make an easy meal or snack with texture & versatility (all you do it soak it in hot water, then add whatever else you want).
OGO
We make Chorizo, tacos, breakfast sausage, sloppy joes, chili, spaghetti sauce, hamburgers, and my wife uses it as meat extender in her meatloaf.

Bob's Red Mill TVP is priced at $ 9.48 (for 5% off subscribers) for a 4-pack deal on 10oz bags. That's 23.7 cents per ounce.
Bob's Red Mill TSP is priced at $28.24 (for 5% off subscribers) for a 4-pack deal on 13oz bags. That's 54.3 cents per ounce.
Thus, TSP is 2.29 times more expensive per ounce than TVP.

TVP (textured vegetable protein) is not organic. Only ingredient: "Defatted soy flour"
TSP (textured soy protein) is certified organic. Only ingredient: "Organic soy"

TVP probably contains about 3 to 4 times as much hexane as soybean oil. Archer Daniels Midland, the makers of TVP, prefers not to talk about hexane.
TSP is hexane-free because the soybean oil is separated from the soy protein, soy carbs, and soy fiber by using an "all natural water process" instead of a hexane bath.
[People who suffer from peripheral neuropathy might be better off eating natto (healthiest), edamame (2nd healthiest), TSP (3rd healthiest), tofu (4th healthiest), tempeh (too expensive anywhere outside of Indonesia), or salt-free and sugar-free soymilk made from whole soybeans (whole soybeans are always hexane-free) instead of TVP because hexane can accumulate in and damage the peripheral nerves of people who become occupationally exposed to hexane].

TVP comes in 10oz bags which look like they are only half as large as the giant 13oz bags that TSP comes in. The reason is that TVP is more compressed (more dense) than TSP. Therefore, TVP will increase in size substantially more during rehydration than TSP.

TVP has been cut into slightly smaller chunks than TSP.

TVP is fatfree and contains 0 grams of fat per quarter cup serving (24-gram dry serving).

I have been searching for a TVP product for a while now and when I saw Bob's Red Mill TVP on the net I looked for it at Amazon and there it was. I hadn't used it in years, so it was a new learning experience and I got an acceptable burger on my first try, but not quite what I was looking for. With a lot more research on the net I discovered that a mixture of TVP and Vital Wheat Gluten, also from Bob's Red Mill and available at Amazon, will give you a much meatier burger. There are several websites that can help you, one is Vegan Dad, which can give you a recipe that will help you find a better burger that isn't so mushy as TVP can be, also check out Thrifty Living. If you are trying TVP for the first time, don't give up on it. Go out to You Tube and type in TVP burger recipes and see what you can find. Also check out Everyday Dish on You Tube. It is a learning experience for sure.

Although I've been a vegetarian and even vegan at times in my life, currently I'm not. I was so happy to find this great price on Bob's Red Mill TVP. It's less than half of what I'd pay at my local grocery store--and only one of the stores in my area regularly even carries it.

If you worry about both health and price, TVP is a great addition to your diet. I use it in conjunction with ground beef. I rehydrate it using beef stock, and then add it to my ground beef. If you're new to TVP, I'd start with rehydrating 1/4 to 1/2 cup and adding it to one pound of beef. You can go up to a 50/50 blend--and most people will not be able to tell the difference, especially in things like chili and meatballs. My kids and husband have no idea. :)

If you buy the 80/20 ground beef--by mixing it with no-fat, high protein, high fiber TVP, you will halve the fat you eat per serving. Because it doubles the amount of beef you get, you can also use this as a way to buy free-range or lower fat meat for your family. Although $4 or $5/pound is a lot for many families--by cutting it with TVP, your true cost is $2-$2.50. Much more affordable.

I really recommend giving it a try. You can buy one cup at the bulk foods section of many health food stores to give it a try. Definitely hydrate it with beef stock for added flavor. If your family likes it, then buy it on Amazon. Good luck!

I've never used TVP before this, so I wasn't sure quite what to expect when I purchased this product. So far I've used one whole bag and I couldn't be happier with it. My whole family enjoys eating the food I've made with TVP instead of ground beef, and so far I haven't noticed any stomach issues in anyone, even the baby. (And though I was a little unnerved by another reviewer's comment on the smell, I didn't really notice anything more than a subtle grain scent when I put my nose in the bag.)

The first thing I did with my TVP was to take the liquid left from making a pot roast in my crockpot, skim away most of the fat, and use the liquid to rehydrate the TVP. It made a really delicious meatloaf-tasting crumble that we ate in sandwiches with ketchup. A few days later, I made a homemade spaghetti sauce with TVP simmered right in, and that turned out great too. I did notice that the TVP made the recipe just a little sweeter than it would've been, but I compensated with extra spices. I would leave the sugar out of the sauce recipe next time I make it with TVP. And last night, I rehydrated the last cup of TVP in the bag with water I'd mixed a packet of taco seasoning into. It made a very serviceable taco meat substitute for beefy taco macaroni and cheese.

Just from my one bag, one quarter of my order, I got three meals for my family, which works out to less than seventy-five cents of TVP per meal. I don't know that I'll ever try to actually make a hamburger with this, but I just love it for any recipe calling for ground beef. Instead of defrosting and cooking a pound of beef, rehydrating a cup of TVP is fast and simple. I will definitely buy this again.
