Textured Vegetable Protein or TVP is an amazing product.
For lack of a better word to describe it, it's "fake" meat.
That might not sound too appetizing but I assure you there are great reasons to have this great product on hand.
1) TVP is so much better tasting than it used to be. One of the more popular TVP's is Taco TVP. It tastes and smells just like your favorite taco places.
2) TVP is very low in calories! It's about the same calories as a low fat yogurt in just a 1/4 serving!
3) TVP is high in protein, really high! Between all the kinds of TVP Shelf Reliance carries, there is 18-21% of your daily value of protein in just 1/4 cup!
4) TVP is very inexpensive and saves you money when trying to extend your chicken, sausage and beef budget. Combine a little beef TVP to your regular ground beef and save some money this month!
