Tempeh In Thailand?


Recommended Posts

Anybody know where Healthy Mate Tempeh is sold in Bangkok? I haven't seen it anywhere in a while. Tried to google them but the site comes up as infected in some way.

Thanks!

This tempeh is available in KPG and the brand is widely present in Thailand.

Can cook with curry or deep fried, both sliced. Good with guacamole sauce too.

Sweet Indonesian memories.

What and where is KPG? I am also interested in Tempeh. I baught some Miso at Tops. They had lots of stuff that might of been fermented soy but all labels in Japanese or Thai

You can order Tempeh starters on line.

This link will help with understanding.

The basic culture is fungus Rhizopus oligosporus spores.

But symbiotic bacteria can also be involved to further process the soy.

Yes un-fermented soy is not good for you. Tons of hype from those who want your money and don't care about your health.

You can lacto ferment soy beans or other kinds of beans too with simple live yogurt or kefir whey.

I make my own soy milk then soy yogurt with a kitchen yogurt incubator and I use the same one to incubate my Natto.

Or you can do better making Natto which has good vitamin K's to keep your arteries clear of plaque.

Widely used in Japan and you can find in the frozen section of Japan Grocery stores and use as a Natto starter.

The Natto bacteria, Bacillus subtilis is a soil bacteria and was originally cultured from rice straw.

It converts the soy to very good things for the body and is used to make many antibiotics now through various fermentation processes.

German military used in North Africa to cure disentary which killed thousands of their troops.

Apparently the Egyptians just ate a bit of warm Camel poop when they had a problem and this was the clue they needed for research.

Now get on to Kombucha which is fermented sweet tea and get your gut full of more good probiotics. I have seen it in a health bar in Pai but no where else as yet.

You need a starter for this too called a Scoby. "Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast" Maybe someone reading this has a scoby to share.

You can get them on line from the States but don't know if they will survive the trip.

Singha is my fav ferment~!

There are some Thai fermented products too my wife tells me. Of course coffee and vanilla are fermented beans and I hear some fellow Canuk is getting some help from Elephants to ferment the beans~!

In Vietnam and other places they use a ferrite like animal I think called a Trivet to ferment them and this coffee is quite expensive.

I bought some tempeh (Healthy Mate brand) from the supermarket at Emporium. It costs 37 baht per block. The thing is that I got them during the start of the Vegetarian Festival (beginning of October). But I'm not sure if they sell it only during the festival month. You should check it out.
