Why is my TVP dark?
posted by asnider to food & drink (1 answer total)
I bought some TVP the other day from the Chinese grocery. It is identified as "thick" TVP and comes as large slices/flakes rather than as a crumble.
It didn't strike me until later that is is much darker than usual TVP. Instead of the usual beige/golden brown colour, it is a dark brown, almost as if it were soaked in soy sauce.
The packaging doesn't seem to indicate that it is flavoured in anyway, but I can't think of any other reason why it would be darker than usual. Any ideas?
