I'm not a Montrealer, but I just wanted to point out that Canada is not 
really restricted. What happens is that our labelling laws are more severe 
(or more honest, if you like). US manufacturers can call something fatfree 
if it has less than 0.5g of fat per serving, no matter how small the 
serving has to be to reach this state. Here something like that would be 
called lowfat. Check labels.

BTW, I've wondered recently if the laws have been changed. Yves products 
are labelled fatfree, and they contain about 0.2g of fat per serving.

I used it instead of TVP in the mini m**tless loaves recipe posted here 
recently, and it turned out great. I also use it to make "m**tballs" and 
suchlike. In fact, for anything in which in a previous life I would have 
used ground m**t.

Be well, Hadass
