     I alreay sent this question, but I haven't seen it posted, so I am
sending it again. I need to know the nutritional makeup of TVP (protein,
carbohdrate especially).



Here it is:

Serving Size: 1/4 cup dry (makes 1/2 cup wet)
Calories: 80
CFF: 0
Sodium: 2mg
Potassium: 594 mg
Total carbohydrates: 7g
Dietary fiber: 4g
Sugars: 3g
Protein: 12g
Calcium: 8% RDA
Iron: 15% RDA
Magnesium: 18% RDA
Phosphorous: 17% RDA

IMHO, this is a near-perfect food: delicious, good for you, essentially no
fat, versatile, and high-protein.  

Hope this helps!
