TVP stands for Textured Vegetable Protein. TVP is made from soy proteins. There is a more complete composite of amino acids in TVP compared to real meat which allows your body to assimilate a higher percentage of protein. You also avoid the fat and cholesterol problems associated with real meats. They taste excellent, in fact you would have a hard time distinguishing TVP from real meats. Our TVP is also endorsed by many vegetarian organizations as an excellent substitute for meat.
