Textured Vegetable Protein is made from soybeans. Use it as a or meat extender vegetarian meat substitute in virtually any recipe calling for ground beef or turkey. Great for tacos, meatloaf, chili, sloppy joes and more.


Textured Vegetable Protein is a highly nutritious soy product. It is incredibly wealthy in complete protein and contains no fat, so it is an excellent alternative to meat. TVP® is made from defatted soy flour that has been cooked under pressure and then dried. TVP® is naturally gluten-free and is handled and packaged in our separated, dedicated gluten-free facility. It is routinely tested for cross contamination using R5 ELISA testing protocol to ensure its gluten-free status.

Although TVP® doesn't add much flavor, it's low in fat and calories, contains a wealth of complete soy protein and it's a good source of dietary fiber. Soy contains complete protein with all the amino acids essential to human nutrition, which must be supplied in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the human body. It is also a good source of iron, magnesium and phosphorus.

Use TVP® as an extender in meat or protein patties and meatloaf, stews and soups. It works great as a protein additive for health bars, salads, cereals, baked potatoes and stuffing. It is very easy to prepare and takes on the flavor of whatever recipe to which it is added, making it an incredibly versatile addition to a wide variety of dishes. Adding TVP® to your favorite cooked dishes is a tasty and simple way to take advantage of soy's bountiful nutrition. Don't forget to try our delicious Country Chili recipe on the back of the package!

    Made great vegan tacos. Easy to use, great taste and texture, and easy clean up. Definitely will try again!

  2. Great for Tacos

    by Smartypants on 08 Thu,2016


    Bob's TVP is great for vegi tacos (I just use a packaged seasoning such as Old El Paso). Super tasty, quick, GF/vegan and it freezes/reheats well. Cleanup is easy too, because unlike meat it doesn't have any fat. Going to make a nice batch of tacos sometime this week - yum!

  3. excellent product for savoury and sweet recipes

  4. Versatile Jazziness!

    by Alyssa on 03 Sat,2016


    I saw this in a recipe and bought it with no real expectations or hope of finding anything super spectacular ...but dang ...this stuff is awesome!! I am a vegan and my oldest son is not -we both agree that this product is a must in our weekly recipe list. Easy to use, adopts flavors quickly, and provides a good and meaty texture. We use it in everything from Sloppy Joe's to Mexican and Italian dishes.

    Thank you for making such an amazing product!!

  5. Tastes great - Good source of protein

    Really great in in chili and chili soup, especially if reconstituted with a bit of beef broth or beef bouillon! I've got a pot of chili soup on the stove right now - perfect for our 14 degree weather here in Ohio!

  6. Perfect!

  7. Another excellent product from a wonderful company!

    by LynnieBug on 11 Sat,2015


    Such a great option for vegans! Thank you for providing so many wonderful, healthy options that taste great too!
    To the perhaps new to the internet person who for some reason is unaware that ALL of your products are Real Food (aka non genetically modified), please look at the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section of this thankfully really easy to navigate, even on my little kindle fire. Your GMO question is answered there, 4th Q in the FAQ :) It took me two seconds. I truly wish people would not "review" a product they haven't used. I buy almost everything in my life on-line and rely heavily on reviews, so am very grateful when they are about the product.... and I recommend this product and the great recipes here that incorporate it, especially the burgers!!

  8. Need to know the GMO status of product.

    by Romey on 08 Wed,2015


    I would really like to know if this product is made from non-GMO soybeans?
