Honeyville's Flavored Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) Combo 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 TVP Combo is an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.

2 #10 cans of Honeyville Flavored-like Beef TVP
each can has 40 ¼ cup servings with 80 calories per serving - 5 pounds

I received two cans of Zucchini during a recent 20 percent sale. But I guess I'll never know how the freeze dried Zucchini tastes because I'm sending both cans back asap. I can't get over how little product there is in each of the cans. I guess product is priced by weight regardless of what volume the package. I'll steer clear of this product in the future.Review by Dino (Posted on 3/24/14)
