TVP facts: Fiber
Did you know that Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) has many vitamins and nutrients?
Lets focus on Fiber today.
TVP provides an advantage over animal sources of protein because it contains fiber. A 1/4 cup of TVP provides 4g fiber, fulfilling 16 percent of the daily value. While vegans should generally not have a problem fulfilling their fiber requirement because they tend to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables and beans, the average American does not get enough fiber in the diet, making TVP a good choice.
