Textured Vegetable Protein - Soyamate
Textured vegetable protein is basically defatted Soya flour which has been processed and dried to produce a substance that has sponge-like texture which may be flavored to resemble meat.
Soya beans are dehulled and their oil extracted before being ground into flour. This flour is then mixed with water to remove soluble carbohydrate and the residue is textured by either spinning or extrusion. Extrusion involves passing heated Soya residue from a high pressure area to a reduced pressure area through a nozzle resulting in the Soya protein expanding. The Soya protein is then dehydrated and may be either cut into small chunks or ground into granules.
Textured vegetable protein which resembles meat may be either flavoured or unflavoured. It is prepared simply by soaking it in water or stock and leaving to stand for a few minutes, after which it has to be squeezed dry before being cooked. The recipes to prepare a sumptuous textured vegetable protein dish are similar to any meat dishes. Besides this, textured vegetable protein is also available in other forms such as burgers, sausages, canned foods etc.
