Originally hailing from the island of Java, Indonesia, tempeh was first a happy accident and later a gift to the world. When beans come into contact with a beneficial mold that grows on teak, banana and waru leaves in the jungle there, it causes mycelium to miraculously spring forth and bind the beans together. Mycelium is the very fabric and infrastructure of all the forests on Earth. It is the information super highway for trees. When we make tempeh, it’s like looking underneath the ground with a magnifying glass; we see the seeds and neurons of the forest as they are forming.
We make tempeh that is grain-free, soy-free, unpasteurized, and fermented in stainless steel, not plastic. Experience tempeh as it was meant to be!
