All about Tempeh

What is Tempeh?

Tempeh originates from Indonesia. It was probably discovered by accident, when cooked soybeans were preserved in hibiscus leaves. Tempeh is made from lightly cooked soybeans fermented with a human-friendly mould (Rhizopus). The fermentation process binds the soybeans into a solid cake and improves their digestibility.

Made from the complete soybean, tempeh is rich in healthy fibre and has a high protein content. It is also a rich source of manganese, calcium, B vitamins, iron and much more.
