If you’re looking for a convenient, on-the-go protein source, but you’re limited to vegan options, Tofurky Jurky might be for you! It’s got great nutritional stats, boasting just 100 calories per 4 piece serving, just 2g of fat (0 saturated) and 12g of protein!!
Tofurky Jurky is the first vegetarian jurky to be make in a real smokehouse! First, they marinate it in a GMO-free soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice and organic evaporated cane juice just before slowly smoking it over red hickory chips. It comes in vaccum sealed packages and has a shelf life of up to 6 months!
It comes in two varieties: Peppered and Original. The Peppered Jurky version was my favorite. It had a bit of a bite back, which I really enjoyed. The smoky taste really popped because of the peppery taste. The Original wasn’t bad, but I found it to be a tad on the bland side. I’m a big fan of bold flavors. I wasn’t a huge fan of the texture, being that I’m non-vegan, I am used to real beef jerky, but other than the fact that it was a little dry, the taste wasn’t bad at all!
What I liked best was the convenience of the product. I could easily throw them in my purse for a low cal, high protein emergency snack. They would make great treats for hiking or camping, too! You can check here for a store near you that carries these products!
Monica also sent me coupons for the Tempeh products in their line, so stay tuned for reviews on that as well! 🙂
