TVP Nutritionals

Sara asked for the nutritional of "textured veggie protein."

First, "tvp" is the registered trademark of Archer Daniels Midland, so
these nutritionals would apply
only to their products, including the tvp used by Dixie. The typical "tSp"
sold in stores in bulk is not  always the same as tVp. (Tsp, textured soy
protein, is usually higher in fat, and void of the beneficial isoflavones
found in tVp, because of the way it's processed.) Anyway, to answer your
question, here
are the nutritionals for tVp, per 1/2 cup (before reconstituting) serving:

Calories	140 (13 from fat)
