SOY BEAN & SUNFLOWER SEED
Unlike pure soybean tempeh, the addition of sunflower seeds adds a crunchy texture and nutty richness that balances out the creaminess of the soybean. Sunflower seeds also boast major health benefits and nutritional value as a great source of Vitamin E, magnesium, selenium and essential fatty acids.
MUNG BEAN & HEMP SEED (soy free!)
As one of the healthiest plant protein sources, mung beans are a disease fighting, health promoting super legume. And, when coupled with hemp seeds, this powerful combination is a healthy and tasty choice. Delicious when pan fried and equally as pleasing when crumbled, this non soy based Tempeh offers a unique nutty fermented flavor.
Knosh Tempeh is made in small batches, ensuring freshness, quality and care. We don't use any chemicals, additives, preservatives or fillers.
Earth, water, fire, air and space are elemental energies inside each of us.
Much healing can be found by acknowledging the elements and recognizing how much we are in touch or out of connection with these fundamental energies.
"Knosh" , meaning "to eat enthusiastically" or "with joy" was founded on the basis that food should be consumed conscientiously in order to bring balance of happiness and health .
What is Tempeh?
Traditionally fermented in banana leaves, the basic ingredients of Tempeh include:
soybeans, living micro-organisms and nature's heat.
We specifically use whole organic beans and seeds for their high quality protein and fibre content.
The beans are cooked, inoculated with a Rhizopus Oligosporus culture, and left to ferment in a precise and controlled environment. Once fermentation is complete, we put the spores "to sleep" by freezing the Tempeh in order to preserve it's freshness and health benefits.
Our unpasteurized Tempeh means all the probiotic bacteria are alive and thriving. This ensures greater health benefits from the active enzymes!
What is Fermentation?
Fermentation is the process in which healthy bacteria grow, using the beans as a substrate to self generate heat, creating what's called a mycelium.
The soft white exterior on your Tempeh (called mycelium) is a living organism that feeds the gut micro flora. These organisms create a healthier intestinal tract by providing essential probiotic bacteria. The bacteria aid digestion by improving the intestinal environment and contribute to overall health!
Fermentation offers many health benefits.

Incorporating more tempeh into your diet can have life changing effects...
The presence of microbes in the gut bacteria have the ability to influence and improve mood, stress levels, and our essential well being. In fact, most disease and sicknesses stem from a compromised digestive system and lack of healthy bacteria within the intestinal tract. It's highly recommended to begin healing the digestive system in order to improve and maintain overall health!
The fermentation process when making Tempeh is what creates healthy bacteria. These probiotics are what nourish
70% of the immune system resides in the intestinal tract. Tempeh provides healthy bacteria to the intestinal system that helps combat sickness and disease.
Tempeh is highly
digestible. The Enzymes
created during fermentation
break down the protein and fibre content of the beans. This facilitates
making them more readily available for the body's use as energy.
