Tempeh (pronounced TEM-pay) originally came from Indonesia where it was an ancient delicacy, and remains a time-honoured favourite today.
TONZU Tempeh is traditionally made by tenderly cooking our whole organic soya beans (BioGro certified), and adding a rhyzopus culture to them. This culture grows through the beans, binding them together to form a dense, tasty TONZU Tempeh.
TONZU Tempeh is one of the few vegetarian sources of vitamin B12, is high in protein, and low in saturated fats, with absolutely no cholesterol – This makes TONZU Tempeh an easy way to greatly reduce your family’s weekly intake of saturated fats and cholesterol by substituting it for a meal’s meat protein. TONZU tempeh is an excellent source of protein.
