Twin Oaks Community Foods makes Twin Oaks Tempeh, which is sold in the freezer section of specialty markets and grocery stores. It is an amazingly nutrient-rich soyfood, high in protein and B vitamins, low in calories and fat, and completely free of any cholesterol. Tempeh differs from tofu in that it has a firmer texture, has a greater density and higher in fiber because the whole bean is used. It is a great meat alternative, and gives your recipes a heartier texture and taste.
Twin Oaks Community Foods products are made at Twin Oaks Community in Virginia by our worker-owned cooperative. Since the community’s beginning in 1967, our way of life has reflected our values of cooperation, sharing, nonviolence, equality, and ecology. Twin Oaks Community is an ecovillage focused on sustainable living. We grow and produce most of our own organic food, use renewable energy sources, and share housing and other resources. We support local agriculture by using only soybeans grown right here in Virginia, which also helps to reduce the use of fossil fuel for transportation. By pooling resources we are able to reduce our expenses and the subsequent impact on the earth.
Twin Oaks Organic Tempeh contains 15% protein (about as much as beef and chicken). It has the highest quality protein found in any soyfood. It is a complete protein and a good source of vitamin B-12. This makes it an excellent choice for strict vegetarians and vegans! Twin Oaks Tempeh is sold in a re-sealable, recyclable plastic bag. When you are selecting our Tempeh, keep in mind that any gray or black spots are sporulation and perfectly normal and optimal for any fermented Tempeh. Keep it frozen until ready to use. Before cooking, simply allow it to thaw in the package for 45 minutes at room temperature.
