English

Subject field(s)
  • Nutritive Elements (Biological Sciences)

DEF

Spun or extruded vegetable protein, usually made to simulate meat.

OBS

Product made primarily from soy flour. It is purchased dry, either in granules (which is most common) or chunks, and generally rehydrated during cooking. The flavor is neutral, so it absorbs the flavors of the other foods it is cooked with. It is often used as a meat substitute, as it is high in protein.

OBS

Applied to soy protein products, the terms "texturization" or "texturing" mean the development of a physical structure which will provide, when eaten, a sensation of eating meat.
