IDAH has developed numerous ready-to-sell textured vegetable protein (TVP), or specifically textured soy protein from soy isolate powder. We have complete know-how from formulation and processing equipment.
|Texturized Vegetable Protein (TVP)
|Low moisture extrusion
|Moisture in extruder outlet (%wb)
|Moisture in dryer outlet (%wb)
|The expanded, fibrous, spongy texture
The raw material consists of high protein powdery material
In this step, trace ingredients such as vitamins and minerals will be added and mixed
During extrusion, the material will undergo high pressure, high
temperature, and shearing in the barrel.
This treatment will induce the formation of protein fiber.
Drying in TVP is an optional process, some TVP will be frozen and
distributed in wet form.
When dried, wet TVP will enter the dryer and come out as dried TVP with long shelf life.
Cooling utilizes ambient air to cool down the hot product coming out
from the dryer.
Thorough cooling is needed to prevent condensation inside the packaging.
Packing gives protection to the products also gives easiness to handle and transport to customer's hand.
Manufacturing Process of TVP
Features and Benefits of IDAH Process Design and Equipment
Since the 1980s’, Taiwan has used soybean and wheat as two base materials to develop textured vegetable protein (TVP) technology. The textured vegetable protein has a meat-like texture and can be made into various healthy vegetarian food products. Based on decades of experience in operating a vegetarian food company, IDAH has complete know-how in converting textured vegetable protein (TVP) into different plant-based meat (vegetarian meat).
IDAH has established a food laboratory since the 1990s, specializing in TSP (Soy Extruded Protein) and IWP (Soy Protein Isolate), and successfully developed plant-based meat (vegetarian meat).
The laboratory was upgraded to a food research factory and began to produce various vegetarian products.
Technical cooperation with the Food Industry Research Development Institute of Taiwan, and the Food Research Institute of Taiwan Ocean University, successfully exported vegetarian meat to the United States.
The food plant of vegetarian meat products was sold to Taiwan Top 5 food company in Taiwan.
IDAH Innovation Center was established to continue to research and develop plant-based meat, becoming the first and only base in Taiwan to provide vegetarian meat equipment, proofing and testing, education and training, and food research and development.
