Best Purchase Ever
The nutritious benefits are well documented but I wanted something simple, quick and easy to use.
I sprinkle it (uncooked) over corn flakes cereal and oats for breakfast using minimal milk. (Tastes a lot like grape nut cereal-no soy taste this way).
It stores well. The packaging appears to be a cellophane type material which apparently doesn't contain plasticizers that often degrade stored products.
Seems to help promote regular bowel movements.

Great source of protein
I love this product. I have used it for all the so called hamburger dishes and have had wonderful results. It's so much cheaper than the frozen products in the stores and I like the convenience of making exactly the amount I want.

I used to cook with TVP regularly and then started having difficulty finding it. I decided to see if I could find it online. Since I have been a Swanson customer for many years, I decided to see if they carried it and THEY DO. I have used other Bob's Red Mill products in the past and have not been disappointed. TVP is easy to cook with, and since my husband and I are vegetarian, it is a good meat substitute for us. I am very happy to find that Swanson carries this product.

TVP is awesome
Once again, Swanson's is the most economical for this product. Have researched and bought locally, and Swanson's can't be beat. Love the TVP as it takes on the flavor of anything you cook it in. I have used it to make chili, "meat"balls and TVP burgers. I use it as a break from meat sometimes. Great product!

Great for homemade protein bars!
This high fiber, low calorie vegetable protein is a fantastic ingredient choice for homemade protein bars.

Good for Low Carb Oatmeal
I use the TVP for a low carb "oatmeal" and it's not quite as good as regular oatmeal, but it's still good.
I use 1/4 cup of TVP, stevia sweetner, 1 1/4 cup almond unsweetened milk. small handful of almonds and a dash of nutmeg.
In the microwave, cook on high for 2 min, and on 50% power for 10 min

I love this TVP because it is small and very crunchy. I add cinnamon and artificial sweetener and milk, and it is a delicous cold cereal. Or I add water and microwave it for a warm cereal. I can't get enough of it.

Very good product.
They don't sell TVP in the stores near me, except at outrageous prices. Swanson offers me a marvelous discount on a very useful item, especially as I'm a low carber. This product is not only easy to use, but it reconstitutes very well if you follow the directions. I've used it in all sorts of recipes as a bread replacement or replacement cereal grain. Works a treat.

Good Vegetarian Option
I have been a vegetarian less than a year. I was tired of vegie spaghetti and the like. I love this product. I use it to make Sloppy Joe's, spaghetti, just about anything that I used to use meat for. All the dishes taste great.
