Vegetable Protein Meat-Analoge

Reviva's soy protein SOTTEX® is a complete gluten free GF vegetable protein
produced out of NON GMO soybeans in a mostly ecologically agricultural area.
The Vegetable Soy Protein is processed mechanically not chemically. We do not
use solvents in our extraction process.

The mechanical processing technology is mild and does not aect or change the
nutritional value of the bean, or the quality of the protein texture.

In addition to the fact that it is a high quality protein, Sottex meat-analog has a
superior texture. After hydrating it has the mouth-feel and slicing of tender meat.
Therefore it is suitable to be used in place of steak or ground beef in any food recipe
where meat is required.

The Chunks can be used by boiling them for 1 hour in water combined with spices
and vegetables. You may also use the chunks by soaking them in hot water, then
combine them with your preferred sauce and cook till marinated.

The Granules can be used by soaking them in hot water combined with spices
according to the flavor your recipe requires.

These soy steaks are used with success in Lifestyle Centers like Herghelia in Romania,
Speranta in Moldove and Migdalia in Israel to help guests who are used to eating
meat to transition to a vegan diet.
