If we are speaking about health, what is in your mind? Doing exercises everyday? Yes, that’s right. Think everything positively? Yes, it is also right. Having enough rest after undergoing a tiring day? It is also completely right. Consuming healthy foods? Absolutely right! Well, this is what we are going to discuss in this article – healthy foods.
There are many kind of healthy foods you can consume. Vegetables, meat, fruits, everything is good for our health. What makes it unhealthy is when we never consume it. For example it is not healthy when you only consume vegetables – no protein sources. In the contrary, it is also unhealthy when you consume something without any limit. For instance you really like chicken. Then, you eat it everyday. Let’s say in one day you can consume more than 3 pieces of chicken. Just imagine what is going happen to your body after!
This is why we cannot say that it is good, it is bad. What makes it good or bad is our habit actually. Here are several kinds of healthiest foods in the world according to Fitness Magazine version:

Why tempeh is not included in the list? Well, tempeh is indeed healthy food but it is not the healthiest food in the world. However, according to a WHFoods forum, what is included into among the world’s healthiest foods is soy for good reason. Why? Here is what the forum explains:
“Soy is the most widely grown and utilized legume in the world with about 13,000 years of cultivation and over 5,000 research studies. Some studies show that soy can help regulate blood sugar, blood pressure, and also estrogen balance.”
And of courses, there are many more studies that show how soy can is really healthy. Due to this reason, we can say that tempeh can be categorized as healthy food since it is also made from soy. The detail information about tempeh is explained below.
Tempeh is a traditional soy product made from fermented soybeans originally from Indonesia, and is especially popular on the Java island, where it is a staple source of protein. It is cake of soybeans, which have been de-hulled, cooked, and mixed with a tempeh starter, then incubated for a single or couple days. This food has grown so much in its popularity that tempeh is now available in many countries in the world. You can easily find in the market, grocery stores, even in supermarket.
Moreover, tempeh is known as a popular vegan food as a substitute for meat, and it is gluten-free. How is the taste? The taste of tempeh is quite difficult to explain. It can be like mushrooms or chicken, but in fact, there is no way of telling what a particular brand tastes like until you taste it yourself. Many people like tempeh, not only because of its unique taste, but also its benefits as you can read in the article above as it is made from whole soybeans. It is very rich in fiber and soy isoflavones. It is also a generous source of many nutrients such as B-vitamins, calcium, iron, etc. That is why tempeh now is used worldwide in vegetarian cuisine because of its nutritional value.
In the process of making tempeh, starter or yeast (ragi tempe) is always needed. It will produce mold which will cover the soybeans so that it will form acompact and dense cake-like. This is what we call tempeh.
