Tempeh Nuggets

Tempeh is a high nutrition food, especially as a source of protein. In addition, tempeh contains other nutrients in significant amounts, such as carbohydrates, fats, minerals, and vitamins.

Protein in tempeh can be said the same with meat. So is the quality. Tempeh contains the nine essential amino acids in sufficient quantities except methionine slightly below the reference, 78 percent.

Fat in tempeh is much lower than meat. It can be used by those overweight or to lower and maintain blood cholesterol.

Calcium necessary for bone formation and preventing fragility is more commonly found in tempeh instead of meat. In addition, the availability of calcium increases due to the fermentation process.

With a myriad of advantages, why should you be ashamed to eat tempeh? If you wanna look classy, process tempeh to be nuggets.
