    After reading another review on soaking this first then using it I tried this product again and it came out great. I made a pasta dish. I plan to keep this on hand all the time now. I worked at a factory long ago and we used this when making burritos so knew it could be good.

    No issues with the seller. I am trying to introduce a more vegetarian diet into my life. So I have tried to make some substitutes with meats to TVP. I used this in some chili and it was ok. TVP is basically really nasty stuff unless you season the crap out of it. At this point I would rather use some real meat in anything vs. this stuff.

    I love it. I recently went Vegan and I found this and have used it in chilli soups and spaghetti.

    If you know how to use TVP properly, this will do the trick!I like that it is colored, so my "meat"loaves don't look like they're made from breadcrumbs!

    I think the product is a good value. I would like to see if they have different flavors and textures for different cooking uses.

    Overall I really like this stuff. It has really good absorption, good nutrition, and very few issues.

    For those having issues you need to treat it like tofu. Don't just soak it in water soak it in a broth. If you're using it in a soup then let it soak up some of the broth the soup or the sauce of a pasta or something like that. If you do that it is very hard to distinguish from normal meat!

    I love this TVP so much. I add it dry to pasta sauces, curries and chili recipes, letting it soak up the flavors as it softens. Thickens the sauce nicely, too. It looks, tastes and behaves enough like finely crumbled ground beef, that unless I make a grand announcement about it being TVP, people haven't known that it wasn't ground beef. As I type this, I have a deep dish lasagna cooking that was made using a cup of this TVP. The other TVP we have in our cupboard (popular brand) is quite rubbery after cooking and its texture/taste reminds me of canned clams, to be honest. Hoosier Hill Farm's TVP, however, is fantastic and the only TVP we'll purchase from now on.

    I want TVP but there is no directions on the bag about how to rehydrate. Only because of Bobs Red Mill do I know to do that but I want to try this brand. I won't buy until I have needed info to use it.
