Soy bean in a packet, riche in fibre and fermented, Tempayy could add variety to your kitchen
Plant-based meat is the food fad of the moment. We’ve all had discussions about it. Now comes Tempayy, a fermented soya bean, vacuum-packed to retain its nutrients. A vegetarian product for vegetarians. Not a wannabe meat item. You might be forgiven for thinking its tofu. It is not. While tofu is made from curdled soy milk, Tempayy is made from whole soy bean.
A high-fibre product, which is fermented, automatically makes Tempayy gut-friendly. Also, it is not a taste that you need to acquire as it takes so well to the ingredients that you add. For Siddharth Ramasubramanian, founder & CEO of Vegolution, The Hello Tempayy, it is a matter of reaching the food to more people through a packaged product that has a shelf life. It is a high protein plant that can meet the dietary needs of vegetarians, who get their proteins only through paneer and daal. It offers them variety with nutrients and fulfils a nutritional gap.
In these times of convenience food, having Tempayy as a back up in the kitchen works well for the sheer variety of recipes you can dish up with it. The vacuum packaging keeps it good for about two months in the fridge. Its porous texture allows it absorb spices and flavours. So whether it’s cubed, crumbled or minced you are sorted for your mood of the moment craving. From my own experience, it works well with spiced peanuts that go well with drinks. It is wonderfully textured in an Italian-style linguine. If you don’t have the energy to even think of a recipe, there are multiple flavoured options that do the work for you.
