The Shipping Of Raprima Tempeh Starter Order To Our Customer, Mr. Mark In Thailand

Like eating tempeh? Have ever tried to make tempeh? What do you like from it?

Well, if you are people who like to eat tempeh and try to make tempeh but don’t succeed, don’t give up. We, tempebumbung are here to help you with this. Just like our customer, Mr. Mark from Thailand. Several weeks ago, exactly in May 2018 he sent us an email message sharing his story about his attempt to find tempeh starter. Here is his message. Please take a look:

Order From Mr. Mark in Thailand

Order From Mr. Mark in Thailand

Tempeh can be defined as a kind of product fermented from soybeans with the help of Rhizopus Oligosporus molds contained in tempeh starter. When the starer is mixed with the soybeans, the fermentation then happen. This is which causes soybeans becomes a cake-like after let it be for at least one day.

Why Mr. Mark wanted to make tempeh? He actually didn’t tell us about it. But we can easily concluded that he possibly like to consume it since tempeh is a vegetarian food which has unique taste and really high nutritional value. The other reason, maybe he wanted to run a tempeh business there. We don’t know for sure about it, but we are extremely sure that he was looking for a best tempeh starter at that time for himself.

 

What Did Mr. Mark Asked About Tempeh Starter?

Alright, back to the message he sent to us. Mr. Mark has been trying to source tempeh starter in Thailand, but without much luck. Till finally he noticed our website and wanted to try our product, Raprima tempeh starter. But before he decided to order with us, he asked some questions about our product. As you can see in the picture above. First of all, thanks to Mr. Mark who intended to get tempeh starter from us. We are tempebumbung. We provide tempeh starter with Raprima brand. So far we run our business, we found that this kind of starter is the best one to produce delicious and fresh tempeh.

The first question he asked to us was the amount of our starter in a pack. Okay, here is the picture of Raprima tempeh starter in 1 pack:

Raprima Tempeh Starter

Raprima Tempeh Starter

This is the smallest package that we have. However, if our customer wants to order less than this, we will provide re-packaging tempeh starer. And if they want more? Of course, we have many stocks of our starter in our place. Don’t worry of anything 🙂

Then, Mr. Mark asked about the measurement of tempeh starter to be mixed with soybeans. So, if our customers are buying 1 pack tempeh starter, they will find the correct measurement of tempeh starter in the packaging of it in the back. If they are buying less than 1 pack, we will help provide the measurement information manually. Here is the measurement:

  • 2gr (Inokulum) Raprima tempeh starter for 1kg soybeans
  • 1 teaspoonful (Inokulum) Raprima tempeh starter for 2.5kg soybeans
  • 1 tablespoon (Inokulum) Raprima tempeh starter for 10kg soybeans

 

Based on this measurement, we recommend our customer to make tempeh from at least 500gr soybeans to make it easy. It means that they only need 1gr tempeh starter for it.

Next, Mr. Mark asked us about the shipping to Thailand. For the shipping, we can only check it when the customer already sends us the complete address so that we can calculate it properly. We also need to check it from the shipping cargo to ensure that we give the right cost.

The last question is about the length of starter can be stored. Our starter is free-GMO. It is organic so that it cannot be saved for long time since it can be dangerous for humans health. Besides, using expired tempeh starter will make the fermentation process fail. Raprima tempeh starter is usually expired no more than 6 months. If you want to keep it, you can use binder clip to close it tightly and then, put it in the jar. You may also keep it in the feezer. For details information please open freezing the tempeh starter to make it last longer.

 

Final Order From Mr. Mark

After having conversation via email intensively, finally Mr. Mark ordered 500gr of tempeh starter from us. He wanted to see how it worked.

Final Order

Thanks to Mr. Mark, our new customer from Thailand who just ordered our tempeh starer. He transferred the payment via PayPal at: nunungsetyawan@yahoo.com

Just after we got the information that he already complete it, we processed his order directly hoping that he could get the starter fast without any obstacles.

Which One Is Better : Tempeh Wrapped In Leaves Or In Plastics?

Who doesn’t know tempeh? From Indonesia, until foreign countries such as London, Australia, Germany, etc, everyone knows it. From traditional tempeh, fried tempeh, tempeh crispy, tempeh steak, tempeh brownies, and many others modern tempeh cuisines, it is always favored by many people.

When you are buying tempeh, you must ever see tempeh which is wrapped traditionally using leaves, especially banana leaves. You can easily find this tempeh when you are in the rural areas. In Indonesia, it is very easy to get tempeh wrapped in leaves in traditional market. Besides, there is also tempeh which is wrapped using transparent plastic. In big city or urban area, we will more easily find tempeh which is wrapped using plastics, especially in a big manufacturers of tempeh. They will choose to use plastic as it is more easy to get. Both tempeh wrapped using banana and leaves are the same, but which one is better?

Well, if you are asking which one is better from both, many will answer tempeh wrapped using leaves is better. But is it true? Either using plastic or leaves, they have positive and negative sides.

  1. Wrapping tempeh using banana leaves

Tempeh in banana leaves

Tempeh wrapped using banana leaves

The advantage of using leaves to wrap tempeh is on the taste. It will produce tempeh with better taste. Besides, banana leaves or maybe other kind of leaves also do not contain chemicals. This leaf is easy to fold and can give delicious smell to the tempeh. Banana leaves also have cavities to let the tempeh circulates. Moreover, the polyphenol content contained in the leaves has similar function with the tea leaves as an antioxidant. This content helps reduce the risk of heart disease, blood vessels, and also cancer. Besides, due to this content, the smell of tempeh will be more fragrant and odorless.

Nevertheless, using banana leaves as tempeh wrapper also has disadvantage. Food packaging plays an important role to control the microorganism contamination of a product. The packaging or the wrappers should be really clean and hygienic. When it is contaminated by microorganisms it can cause food damage which is dangerous for human health. This is why if you decide to use leaves to wrap tempeh, make sure that it is already cleaned well.

Furthermore, the inconsistent leaf availability can be an obstacle. In the village, tempeh craftmen will more easily get a good stock of banana leaf, while in the city, it only exists most in the rainy season. As a result, tempeh wrapped using banana leaves is more difficult to find in the city, isn’t it? Tempeh with plastic will be more easily to find there.

 

  1. Wrapping tempeh using plastic
Tempeh in plastic

Tempeh wrapped using plastics

Well, tempeh that uses plastic as the wrappers usually comes from a more modern and cleaner tempeh producers. So, in the terms of hygiene, this is more secure than banana leaves. Besides, the packaging of plastic has advantages such as it is strong, lightweight, and not rusty. It is also waterproof and airtight. Different with using leaves which is easily torn, plastics is not easily damage or leaking.

However, the packaging of plastic also has disadvantages. First is the presence of some chemicals which possibly can move the the product. Of course, this will endanger humans health. Under certain conditions, the contact between plastics and food will cause migration of chemicals to the food. It happens because of the influence of the heat of the food, the storage, or the processing. The higher the temperature, the higher the probability of migration. As a result, the longer the contact between food with plastic packaging, the higher the amount of chemicals which migrate to the product. It it happens continuously, it can increase the risk of cancer.

Then, plastic packaging is not environmentally friendly. Plastics which is not used will become garbage. If we cannot manage plastic wisely, it will not good for our environment, right? Moreover, as we know that plastic is a kind of material which is hard to unravel. It is very difficult to decompose on the ground by microorganism. It needs hundreds to thousands of year to have plastic decomposed. Just imagine what happens to our environment if we just keep pounding this kind of material?

Choose tempeh wrapped using plastic or leaves?

Choose tempeh wrapped using plastic or banana leaf?

As the conclusion, if we talk about taste and health, tempeh which is wrapped using leaves is better than wrapped using plastics as long as you use fresh and clean leaves. But if it is about the cleanness, tempeh wrapped using plastic is better.

For Indonesian people, many of them will choose tempeh wrapped using leaves rather than using plastics. They believe that this traditional tempeh is fresher, more fragant, more organic, and more delicious when cooked. Nevertheless, tempeh in leaves aren’t always available in supermarket, so they sometimes also buy tempeh in plastics which is easier to get. So, no matter which one you chose, tempeh is always rich for its nutritional value. That is the important point!

What product do we sell?

Raprima tempeh starter

Consultation with our customer

Well, few weeks ago there was a customer from abroad who sent us an email message asking about how to keep tempeh starter. Please see the complete question below:

Customer's Question

Customer’s Question

From the picture we can see that he just bought tempeh starter in Indonesia for about 1kg. He was not able to use it all, so he wanted to keep it. Then, he asked to us: is it possible to freeze the tempeh starter to make it last longer?

He is not the only one who asked about how to save tempeh starter. We also ever got this question from our customer from Switzerland but with more question related to starter.

So, let us inform you more about keeping the starter. Well, in Indonesia the use of freezer is not recommended since Indonesia is almost entirely tropical. It has suitable temperature for tempeh starter which is about 26°C – 36°C on average typical days. Therefore, Indonesians don’t save tempeh starter in the freezer. We only save it in the jar with the condition of opened starter is tightly closed. You can close it tightly with binder clip like the picture below:

Binder Clip

Example how to use binder clip

You can also close it using rubber bracelet as the picture below:

So, is it possible to freeze the tempeh starter to make it last longer?

Example how to keep starter in the closed glass jar

Example how to keep starter in the closed glass jar

Well, placing the starter in the freezer can also be allowed but you will need extra work. First, you should place the starter in a closed glass jar and don’t forget to close the starter tightly using binder clip or rubber bracelet as we inform previously. Second, when you are going to use it you should let it for a while to get normal temperature. Don’t use starter in the cold condition because the mold will not work. It will cause the fermentation process fail. See the example of placing starter in a closed glass jar in the left side.

 

From the explanation above it can be concluded when you want to save your starter, please recognize first the temperature of the room. What should be emphasized is that, you cannot place tempeh starter either on too moist or too dry place.

 

From this article, we hope it can answer your question on how to keep tempeh starter. If you need more information, don’t hesitate to contact as.

Customer's Question

Customer’s QuestionOur customer contacted us via email. From the message, we can see that he was looking for Indonesian source of Raprima tempeh starter. He was also going to get bigger amount on regular basis. But at that time, he just wanted to get some sample amount to try our Raprima first.

Then, he also asked whether we could ship with some faster courier such as DHL, FEDEX, etc. So here is our explanation:

As an online seller that serve any order from many countries in the world, we should choose the service which can deliver the order fast and save. This is why we choose EMS Service by Pos Indonesia. For more detail please read here (an information about sending starter to our customer in California who also asked about the shipping service).

However, the maximum order of starter sent abroad using this service is only 25kg. More than this amount, Pos Indonesia is not able to handle. So, this is the answer for our customer:

Answer To Our Customer

The Answer To Our Customer’s Question

If the order is minimum 25kg, we recommend our customer to use DHL service. We ever had a customer lived in Italy. Open tempeh starter order to Italy to see the detail story.

So, DHL service is set by the customer. What should we do is just prepare any required documents asked. When the customer already makes an appointment with the DHL service, the customer must confirm us when they will pick the order and what should we prepare. And so far we send the packet using DHL service, there is nothing bad happen. Everything runs so well. This is why we recommend our customer to use DHL service if they are going to order high amount of Raprima tempeh starter.

 

Conclusion

If you are the one who wants to buy high amount of Raprima tempeh starter with us, we will be very happy to serve you. If your order is less than 25kg, we will use EMS Service by Pos Indonesia which is able to send the packet no more than 2 weeks as long as there is no obstacles during the shipping. However, if your order is 25kg or more, we suggest you to use DHL Service in your area to make the shipping process easy.

And one more thing to remind our customers from abroad about custom tax, or bea cukai. Please read our article tempeh FAQs in point 13. There is mentioned that we are not responsible for any custom fees or package rejected/hold by customs. This is why you should check your own country’s customs office to ensure about it.

For more information, you may contact us via email, phone, or social media. If you have something in your mind, we will be very happy to answer. Contact us at:
