I don't know about crumbles, but I want to correct an apparent inaccuracy
here. According to "The Mail Order Catalog," their plain TVP contains
between .1 and .2 gms of fat per 1/4 cup dry, which makes about 1/2 cup
reconstituted. Their organic TVP had .1 gm per 1/4 cup. There was no sodium
content listed, but I don't think there is any added sodium.

If Bob Beeley, who posted the above comment, has different figures, I'd like
to see them.
