Honeyville's Flavored-Like Ham 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 Ham TVP is an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.

Shelf-Life: Ham 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 ham 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:  Ham Flavored TVP can be used separately or in combination with meat as an effective meat extender in salads, soups, casseroles, pizza toppings, and more.

Great Stuff!

I've been using the ham TVP for several months; it has a very good ham-like flavor. 90% of the time I use it for a grilled "ham" and cheese sandwich yummy! However you have to be careful not to put too much water for re-hydrating or you'll end up with a soggy sandwich. I also use it in mac and cheese or cheesy rice. One can can go along way for one person. I recommend it.

Tastes and Smells Funny

I bought some of the ham flavored TVP along with some chicken and beef flavored TVP. The smell of the ham is quite strong. It smells like the liquid smoke stuff you can get to flavor meat. Frankly my wife won't eat it and she doesn't even like being in the same room when I am using it in a recipe.

Pretty good. I'll buy more.

Out of the can these are tasty. They will be good on a salad like bacon bits. After reconstituting in hot water they are Bland. At first I was disappointed. I decided to try to make powdered eggs and ham. I heated some olive oil in a non stick skillet and added the reconstituted ham pieces. I cooked them until there were some that were crispy kinda. Just like if you cooked ham and got the browned edges. I then added reconstituted eggs and fixed like scrambled eggs and ham. My husband has requested this three times in the last week! You can make an egg sandwich which is very good. The "ham" pieces are excellent even without the egg. I have put the hot cooked ham on bread with a slice of cheese and mayo. Ok thats not emergancy rations but very good none the less. I think the key is to cook the reconstituted bits before adding to other foods. Perhaps there is something in them that carmelizes. I'm not really sure. I have not tried mac and ham and cheese but it is an idea. I didn't think these were exceptionaly salty but I like salt. The odor is strong but not unpleasant. Just like cured ham (almost). I really didn't detect a "soy" taste which I was expecting. In some bites it was very faint. These went from emergancy rations into my cupboard for everyday use.

Not as good as the Beef

Have been getting the soy-beef granules for a while decided to branch out and try the Ham and Chicken varieties. Not terribly impressed with the Ham so far extremely strong smell when the can was first opened and it has an excessively salty taste - more like salt cured pork. :) Wife and I are trying to rehydrate once drain and then rewash with water to see if the smell and taste become more subtle but for now I'll be buying the Beef and the existing can of Ham I have may be a while in emptying.

Has become my favorite TVP

I find most TVP OK but not great. I don't really think the beef or chicken flavored TVP really taste like beef or chicken but they are OK in a good recipe. I didn't think I would like ham flavored TVP and avoided it for a long time. Boy was I ever surprised when I did finally try it. IMO this TVP tastes like ham. It is very flavorful. It is fabulous in split pea soup. In fact my family thinks it IS ham in the soup every time. They are very surprised (if they ask) when I tell them it is TVP. Also nice in scrambled eggs.
