Our tempeh is a fermented food grow on any legume paired with Rhizopus Oligosporus, a mushroom-like fungus. The FDA considers tempeh a converted food, no longer the legume or the fungi are recognized, it is a new whole food called tempeh! Unlike tofu, our tempeh is a firmer and pleasantly textured food high in protein, fiber, and active enzymes to aid in digestion. Tofu and other meat alternatives are concentrated in such an unnatural, manufactured way that our bodies often have difficulty obtaining the desired nutrition. This among many other benefits places tempeh in the running for the newest superfood.
