Cultures for Tempeh

White mould fibers connecting soy beans together

Tempeh is a traditional Indonesian soy product made from fermented soybeans using rhizopus oligosporus mould. It became increasingly popular due to its delicious nutty profile and high protein content. It also has a firm and earthy flavour, which increases in intensity as it ripens. We love it especially sliced thin and fried into chips, or cubs in a lemongrass-sambal stir-fry.

    Famed chef David Chang of Momofuku describes it best: 
    "Microbes produce enzymes, enzymes develop amino acids, glutamic acid + aspartic acid = umami, umami = delicious."

    Recommended Usage:

    1g tempeh ragi for every 250g of dry beans or 500g cooked beans
