Is this raw? If it is, do you soak it and it eat? I understand vegans eat this as a substitute for meat? Thanks. ;)

Yes it is a vegan sub for meat, and yes you do soak it before adding it to a recipe - however, it is by no means a raw food. Sorry.

OK thanks. Well that's out. Not a big deal anyway. Just very curious. :D

Don't eat this even though it is not raw. It's bad stuff. Search for excitotins and this is a poison to eat. It just comes up with a different name than msg. book: Excitoxins, the Taste that Kills. Online search for Russell Blaylock or combo of words to get more the disguise names for msg. Shocking and terrible, but sad that Whole Foods and others still sell.
"MSG may be hidden in calcium and sodium caseinate, gelatin, flavors, seasonings, autolyzed yeast extract, and modified food starch, textured and hydrolyzed proteins, hidden in over 40 food additives.
Joseph B. Marion, Anti-Aging Manual Information Pioneers, 1999 Page 60
Cheese, smoked fish, yogurt, and yeast extracts contain an ingredient known as tyramine, which has been known to increase susceptibility to migraines. Sodium nitrate, common in cold cuts and frankfurters, is yet another cause. Gary Null, The Complete Encyclopedia Of Natural Healing: A comprehensive A-Z listing of common and chronic illnesses and their proven natural treatments
Kensington Publishing Corporation, 2001 Page 204
Most processed foods contain excitotoxins, especially any type of commercial taste or flavor enhancer, such as hydrolyzed vegetable protein; soy protein extract; yeast extract; beef stock; commercial soups, sauces, and gravies; caseinate; and aspartame. These excitotoxins may simply be labeled as "natural" flavorings."........

It's unbelievable and I believe in his book he also lists other products that go under "disguise" that can or do turn to MSG. I hardly ever eat out as I don't know what is in the foods. I keep it simple so a salad bar is one I can see most of the stuff in it. I mainly do my thing here and mainly living on fruits and salads mainly. I haven't even used my dehydrator in a long time too--9 tray--just find it easier for me at this time to throw together and eat in less than 5 minutes for the 2 of us.
Glad to share Goingraw.
I used to eat the TVP but way too many years to ever want to go back based on this knowledge.
