Tempeh is a super healthy food! It has been a staple in Indonesia for several hundred years. A cultured food, like yogurt, tempeh is made from fermented soybeans. As with yogurt, tempeh can benefit gastrointestinal health. Tempeh’s protein content rivals meat and other animal proteins.
Tempeh is part of a sustainable diet because of its nutrient density, good taste, and as a substitute for animal protein—it conserves resources such as water, energy, and land. I prefer to choose organic soybeans because most non-organic soybeans in America are genetically modified.
