Organic Tempeh Starter Culture 10g
What is Tempeh?
Tempeh is a fermented plant-based, vegan protein—typically a cultured soybean cake or other types of legumes—that has been a staple in Indonesia for centuries. The fermentation process allows the proteins within the food to be more easily digested and degrades anti-nutrient compounds. In its finished form, tempeh can be baked, steamed or grilled.
Tempeh has prebiotic and probiotic properties.
-Absorption: Eating fermented foods aids in the absorption of other nutrients.
-Balance: Fermented foods help our guts balance the good bacteria with the not-so-good bacteria.
-Digestion: Fermented foods help aid digestion.
-Enzymes: Fermented foods are rich in enzymes, the building blocks of protein. Enzymes are the catalysts for breaking down food during digestion.
How to Make Tempeh
Whilst the starter worked well, I was a bit dissapointed to read in your tempeh making instructions that 500g of soy/lentils requires 10g of your starter. Is this correct or is this a typo.? Normally I would use 1 tsp per kg.
