This used to be my favorite TVP, but they changed the recipe. It used to have some flavor, but now it's bland like other company's TVP. It's also a lot finer pieces than it used to be. I usually use 1 cup of TVP in my spaghetti sauce, but it completed overwhelmed the sauce and made it really bland. Not sure I'll buy it again.
