Can someone tell me why TVP is on the forbidden list? I thought it was made of soy. Where's the gluten?

I use it a lot in place of ground meat....

Thanks for the help in advance!

I'm not sure as far as gluten is concerned. The only thing I could think of is CC issues.

TVP is a form of msg due to the way it is processed from what I remember. Check out truthinlabeling.com if you want more info on hidden msg.

I'm going out on a limb on this one...but if I remember correctly, its that TVP is only a problem if you don't know the source (of the vegetable, which, if it is soy, should be fine).

Anyone else have any insight?

Some brands are gluten-free. Bob's Red Mill is and is made in their gluten-free facility.

It is usually made of soy but can be made of other things. Why anyone would want to eat it is beyond me though. *Remembers not so fondly, the large bag of ham flavored TVP my dad bought when I was a kid* Blech!

I am wondering if there are two different kinds? I just bought Bob's Red Mill Brand of TVP and it has their registered Gluten Free symbol on the Package. I have not used it yet but I want to try some recipes for it and see it we like it. I wouldn't use any that wasn't labelled gluten free because of all the contraversy around it.

I went to the site but? A couple of years ago I read Russell Blaylock's MD "Excitotoxins" which was a fantastic book on brain damaging substances/excitotoxins like MSG and I will have to check the book for any info on this but how is TVP a form of MSG? I really can't tolerate MSG and just bought some gluten-free TVP. ?????? Please explain. Thanks

Hey

I'm just newly diagnosed and as a vegetarian who uses TVP I've been struggling. I am so glad I came across this forum and this thread...I am going to now look for gluten free tvp by Bob's Red Mill (I'm assuming this can be found in Canada....)

I think I read a question on how to beef up on protein and I could not reply ; We are mostly vegetarian and to keep up on protein we for example:

We eat a salad with toasted pumpkin seeds -2T is a good boost - I toast my own seeds as they taste better than the toasted salted ones. I just throw them in the oven for 7-8 minutes at 350F

We also sprinkle sunflower seeds and for pasta dishes we love pine nuts. Do you like lentils? I find them easier to create quick meals with. The red lentils will make a soup in a 30-40 minutes. If you want a recipe or any more ideas let me know. It is hard to know what to post - it depends on what one likes but I find getting fiber and protein is important and the nuts and seeds really help here.

Hey!

YES - I would love some tips and recipes. I have been a vegetarian for almost 7 years, but I admit my recipe base is small and I did rely upon faux meat products that I have discovered are full of wheat gluten in order to beef up the protein. The sunflower seeds on salad is a great idea I just didn't think about. I"d love any recipes related to fiber and protein and I do like lentils!!! THanks songstressc

Here are a couple of recipes; These recipes are filled with fiber ie the lentils and veggees and lots of protein. I have a list of items and apices to stock kitchens with. Let me know if you would like it. These are basic recipes; you can adjust to your tastes. I hope this is clear; I also don't know how much you know so let me know if you have questions.

What to do with Lentils! I like to serve this soup with a homemade cornbread muffin
