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

Shelf-Life: Stores 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 taco 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: Taco Flavored TVP can be used separately or in combination with meat as an effective meat extender in tacos, pizza toppings, burritos, meat sauces and more.

Taco SALT

My that stuff is way too salty for my taste! We hardly ever add salt to any thing at the table. I had to mix some beans in it to even get it down.
I do like the texture and the portion size was pretty dead on after reconstituted with water. I might try rinsing the next batch to see if it will remove some of that salty taste. I don't mind having to put a few spices back in myself. I won't toss it out though...will just know when using it to put it with something else like rice or beans and don't add any salt.

Great flavor, very easy to soften up, and great size of individual pieces!

Love, Love, Love! Long distance hiker and I use this taco TVP as a primary base for probably 40% of my meals, with the other 60% using the Chicken Flavored TVP. This taco flavor can be a bit on the salty side, but what I have found is a good trick is to pre-soak it for a minute or two in water. Only have to do this with a few meals that do not need more salt. For the vast majority of the meals I just throw it right into whatever meal I am going to be having. I really like the smaller size of the taco TVP. I wish the chicken flavor used this smaller sizes.

Ok as an extender

This was our first purchase of a TVP meat substitute product. Made it once using equal parts reconstituted TVP and taco seasoned ground turkey. Had an artificial taste and TVP granules were a bit small compared to the turkey grind. Tried it again using 1/4 tvp and 3/4 taco seasoned ground beef. TVP flavor was still there but not as noticeable. We will use these TVP cans up as extenders but I think I will splurge and buy freeze dried ground beef in future orders.

Way too salty

It's a good quality product nice texture and overall good nutritional makeup. But way too much salt. I'm not a "low sodium" freak or even close but this is just way salty. Which makes no sense unless done for shelp life purposes. But in a survival situation I wouldn't want my food to make me as thirsty as this will. Disappointed.

Happy first time buyer

After looking around and considering TVP as a part of my new eating habbits few weeks ago I decided to try some of your products. I bought the Taco Beef and Chicken TVP (some of my "favorite foods") not really sure what to expect.

Grand Imperial Poobah of Mandatory fields that make no sense

Have been picking this up in the Honeyville in Chandler and VERY happy to see it finally on the website. Mild taco flavour very convincing with mouth feel and taste. Mix this 1/2 and 1/2 with the beef tvp since the beef is a larger granule size. Fast becoming our favorite of the TVP meat analogues very versatile.
