Everything You Need to Know About TVP Bacon
Here's what you need to know about TVP Bacon
Bacon makes everything taste better: breakfast, lunch, and a gourmet dessert (you read that right!). Unfortunately, bacon's reputation for being unhealthy and too heavy to consume on a regular basis pops up everywhere. The next best thing? Bacon bits TVP. This soy based food tastes and looks like our favorite breakfast staple, and is healthier and easier to cook with. If you've searched for a drool-worthy way to tone down your bacon addiction, here's everything you need to know about TVP Bacon Bits and their delicious affects on your taste buds.

TVP Bacon?


Short for Textured Vegetable Protein, TVP is a food product made from de-fatted soy flour. All the oils removed during processing make it healthier than the real bacon. TVP shows up in granules, so it looks a lot like ground beef or turkey.  This vegan treat is also jam packed with dietary fiber and protein. While its slight spongy texture may put off some people at first, TVP's taste is unique, often putting many non-vegan bites to shame.
One of our most popular TVP flavors is Bacon Bits. After regular, unflavored TVP mixes with certain herbs and spices, it's then smoked to perfection. If you want to add this food to your weekly menu, we recommend since they are easier to handle, cook, and sneak into meals.

Cook With TVP Bacon


What TVP Bacon Bits lacks in water (they are dehydrated) is made up in flavor, ready to be consumed as is or to use them to season your salads, pizza, soup, toasts, etc. Note that some recipes, which promote the whole quick-cooking mantra, don't require you to hydrate the Bacon Bits: you just add them to the mix and let the moisture from other ingredients rehydrate. If your recipe calls for hydrated TVP Bacon Bits, make sure to add one cup of warm water for every cup of the TVP you use. Set them aside for about 15 minutes, and when you come back, the Bacon Bits will look like regular Bacon Bits. They'll be ready to flavor up any dish: pasta sauces, casseroles, chili, and Sloppy Joes. Yum!

Why TVP Bacon Is Worth A Spot in Your Pantry


From saving you money to loading your body with nutrients, TVP Bacon Bits are nothing like their distant, fatty cousin (a.k.a. regular bacon). If you can't go without bacon's rich flavor for long, but hate to see your body suffer the health consequences, here are six reasons to stock up on this TVP ASAP.
  • 100% Vegan

Despite their name, TVP Bacon Bits contain zero meat. In fact, they are solely made of soy flour (minus the oil) - 100% plant-based. Even though the product's description refers to bacon, this vegan treat has nothing to do with the favorite cured meat - except that it tastes like it. If you're thinking of vegan-izing your cabinet just a bit, TVP Bacon Bits should be at the top of your grocery list.
  • Affordable

It's no secret that stocking up a vegan pantry can be expensive, but TVP, in general, and TVP Bacon Bits, in particular, are an exception to this rule. They are affordable and widely used. That's one of the reasons they are a weekly menu staple for facilities with limited resources, like schools. If you are on a budget, TVP Bacon Bits are a no-brainer.
  • Versatile

Thanks to its granule form, this delicious meat substitute can be part of various dishes. You can add it in sauces, soups, baked goods, tacos, chili, and even desserts ( to balance the sweetness): from sautéeing and boiling to searing and simmering.
  • Packed With Nutrients

TVP Bacon packs an impressive nutritional punch with several rockstar nutrients: fiber, protein, iron, calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium. It also boasts zero to low fat, since it's all removed during the de-fatting process. TVP Bacon Bits are the perfect way to satiate your hunger, feel fuller for longer, and promote those muscle gains.
  • Tastes Awesome

TVP's mild, almost neutral flavor absorbs flavorings very well. Even though TVP Bacon Bits have a slightly more intense taste than the regular version, they can still absorb the flavors of the surrounding ingredients (onion, fresh herbs, etc.) and create a unique and ultra-delicious flavor palate. Who said dehydrated foods are not tasty?
  • Long Shelf Life

TVP Bacon Bits has a long shelf life, lasting for a couple to many years, depending on how well you store it. Whether you are a fan of camping and the great outdoors or want to stock your survival/emergency cabinet with something bacon-y, this product fits the bill.
