Start up plant-based brand Tiba Tempeh has announced the launch of a new range of organic tempeh products, the Indonesian dish made by deep-frying fermented soya beans.
The range consists of a traditional tempeh block, pieces in three flavours of Curry Spiced, Sweet Chill and Soy Marinade and the first ever tempeh burger to hit UK supermarkets in Smoky BBQ flavour. All products has an RSP of £3.25/200g.
Made by fermenting organic soybeans with live cultures, the range also taps into the growing trend for products supporting gut health and that are high in fibre.
“Our philosophy is planted in simplicity with our traditional tempeh block being made with just three simple natural ingredients of organic soybeans, live cultures and water,” said Alex Longton, founder of the brand.
“Our flavoured tempeh pieces and burger add our unique blend of natural herbs and spices with no artificial ingredients”.
The range is high in protein with 25g protein per 100g which is double that of Tofu and significantly higher than most other meat free alternatives.
“For centuries Tempeh has been a staple in Indonesia and our aim is to disrupt the market with an innovative range and marketing campaign to make tempeh mainstream in the UK,” Longton said.
The range will be launching in Planet Organic stores from the 2 December, distributed by Wholegood, and roll out to other retailers in January in time for the key Veganuary period.
