Soya TVP Caramel Light

Soya TVP (Caramel Light), also known as textured soya protein, soya mince, soya meat or soya chunks is made from extrusion of high PDI de-oiled soya flour. High PDI de-oiled soya flour is heated to 125°C to 150°C at high pressure which denatures it into a fibrous, insoluble, porous network that can soak up, as much as more than three times of its weight in fluids. As the pressurized molten protein mixture exits the extruder, the sudden drop in pressure causes rapid expansion into puffy solid that is then dried. It is available in various shapes like mince,
flakes, granules, chunks, nuggets, steaks and in various sizes and colours.
