Hydration of Textured Vegetable Protein-TVP

Our TVP-products are available as dry products that needs hydration.

You can soak the dry products in cold water containing 1% of salt. The product should be drained, when complete hydration is obtained.

Watch this video on how to hydrate.

If you want to use the TVP-products in a sauce, you can reduce the hydrating time, but then you must add more liquid to the sauce – around 2½ x the volume of the TVP-products.
Ex: 1 dl Bites need 2,5dl liquid.
