Tempeh originated in the Island of Java, Indonesia, centuries ago. As individuals who grew up in Indonesia, Wiwas Tempeh owners are passionate in bringing this traditional iconic food “tempeh” into every family in the United States; a nation with diverse cultures.
Tempeh is highly nutritious. In addition to its high protein content, tempeh is also an excellent source of calcium, minerals, dietary fiber, and rich in vitamin B12, which is exceptionally rare in plant-based food. Tempeh has high isoflavones contents that potentially may reduce cancer risk. Furthermore, the fermentation process makes the protein in tempeh more easily digestead and absorbed by our body compared to soybeans and other forms of soybeans.
