Honeyville's Flavored-Like Beef Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) is actually a meat analogue product made through a special extrusion process which provides a 100% vegetable product that approaches the taste and texture of meat. This highly nutritious vegetarian meat substitute is processed from defatted soy flour which contains more than 52% protein and 18% total dietary fiber. TVP has been used for many years in U.S. Food Nutritional Service programs and has been an integral part of the School Lunch program. Because of the recognized health and nutritional benefit of soy protein in the diet and the added benefit of low moisture and low fat content, Honeyville Flavored-like Beef TVP is an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.
Shelf-Life: Beef Flavored TVP will store for 10 to 20 years in a sealed #10 can (oxygen absorber included) under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place). Once opened, it has an average shelf life of 6 to 12 months.
Instructions: Add one part textured vegetable protein to one part hot water. Allow beef TVP to hydrate for about 15 minutes. Adding ½ cup textured vegetable protein to ½ cup of water will yield about 1 cup of cooked meat substitute.
Uses: Beef Flavored TVP can be used separately or in combination with meat as an effective meat extender in burritos, tacos, soups, pastas and more.

I am a vegetarian and have a non veg living with me. I use this in spaghetti sauce, chilli, soup. My non veg eater has never thought it was not ground beef and always enjoys her meals. I sometime reconstitute it or just dump a cup full while the sauce or chilli is cooking. I love this product.Review by Nora (Posted on 1/23/14)
