The Process Of Making Tempeh

Tempeh-making Process

Making tempeh is not that easy as we imagine, but we also cannot say that it is difficult. The point is that, in the process of making tempeh we need to be patient and have skill.
The problem is, not everyone has been experienced in making tempeh, right? They can probably feel difficult to make it when they just start to make it. But what we actually need first is as we mentione above, “patient”.
If you are lucky, for the first time you make it tempeh can be successfuly made. And if you are unlucky, how many times you try it can really be hard to make it success.
But don’t worry about this since we are already here. We are tempebumbung will help you with this. We are ready to hear your story and give you our best answers related to your questions.
Only for information, here are some information related to the tempeh-making process that you may need to know such as factors that influence the process, the easy way to make your own tempeh, how to make good tempeh, and other articles in our site at tempebumbung.wordpress.com

Question Related To The Tempeh-Making Process: Why Tempeh Is Easily Decaying?

There are several factors, according to the tempeh-makers experts, that can cause tempeh easily decaying which causes to the failure. Let’s see what are those below:
1. The cleanliness
What should be clean? EVERYTHING! The materials and the equipment should be in a clean condition. In the process of washing soybeans and the removal of soybeans skin, the cleanliness is the most important point that we should notice. Remember that you should also use clean water to wash it. If we use clean materials, tempeh will not easily decaying. We can keep the tempeh in a refrigerator for a week.
If you make tempeh in small scale, you can remove the skin only manually by hands. But if you make in big scale, there is a machine that you can use to peel the skin of the beans, just like what Mrs. Shin use like below:

Soy-breaking machine

Soy-breaking machine

So is with the equipment. Make sure that all of the tools you need in the tempeh-making process are already cleaned. Even though the main point is the cleanliness of the materials, doesn’t mean you can forget the equipments. It is also important to keep them clean so that you can get tempeh with high quality and of course, hygienic.

2. The process of drying tempeh
After the process of washing soybeans and the removal of soybeans skin, the soybeans should be drained before starter is given. Why? Because if we spread starter with the beans which are not in a dry condition, it will make the fermentation process fail. Then, as a result, the soybeans will be easily decaying.
This is why you should really pay attention to this point. Again, don’t mix starter with soybeans in the moist or even wet position. Make sure that all of soybeans has already been dry.

3. Room temperature
In addition to the soybeans matters, the other factor that can make tempeh easily decaying is the temperature which is too hot. The room temperature is very influential in the fermentation process and the growth of Rhizopus molds. To make it success, tempeh needs about 26°C – 34°C.
If the temperature is to low, the molds will not grow well so that tempeh will not be in the form of cake. Meanwhile, if the temperature is too hot, it will cause overheating so that tempeh will be easily decaying.

Well, those are the factors that you should notice to avoid the decaying of soybeans. Now let’s see the tips to avoid tempeh decaying easily from other tempeh-makers:
1. Choose the raw materials (soybeans or non-soybeans) which has good quality. You can use clean soybeans which is bright in color and dry. Don’t choose soybeans with a lot of damage seeds.
2. In addition to the materials cleanliness, clean all the production tools from the dirt and bacteria.
3. Remove the skin from soybeans until it runs out before fermentation process.
4. If you use plastic as the wraper, you can make a little hole using stick. Here is the picture:

5. Place the ready tempeh on a place where will allow air circulation. You can place it in a big room but where the air circulation is provided well.
6. If you are tempeh sellers, don’t arrange the pile of tempeh too crowded in long time since it will make it hotter which causes the decaying of tempeh.

7. Keep tempeh in a clean and cool place before cooking it.

Consultation Session: 9 Factors That Can Influence The Tempeh-Making Process?

Soybeans tempeh is one kind of the household products. There are many people who produce tempeh from small, medium, up to big scale of it and the distribute to the society. For small and medium scale can be still produced independently but for big production of tempeh usually is produced by the company or cooperative business.

Talking about the tempeh-making process, long time ago it is still made in the traditional way with limited capacity. However, along with the development of technology, the process, packaging, and marketing has changed. However, the most fundamental matter in the tempeh-making is the production process which usually takes a long time but must prioritize the cleanliness. Besides, we don’t pay attention to the right rules of tempeh-making process, then the results will not be satisfying.

Even though it looks so simple, the cleanliness, the process, the quality of tempeh starter, the quality of materials, and the adequate of equipment have very important role to produce tempeh. The followings are the detail factors that can influence the tempeh-making process:

 

  1. The Quality Of Soybeans

High Quality of Soybeans

High Quality of Soybeans

In making tempeh, soybeans is the main ingredients. Please note that not every type of soybeans can be used. The soybeans used as the ingredient for making tempeh usually have yellow slightly brownish. Soybeans originated from China, Korea which then spread to Japan, Taiwan, India, Indonesia, to America. American soybeans has a round shape and rather large in size compared with local soybeans. Therefore, it is more suitable when used as raw material for making tempeh. The point is that, in making tempeh good quality of soybeans is deeply required to produce tempeh which also has good quality.

 

  1. The Quality Of Starter

Waru Leaves As Starter

Raprima Tempeh Starter

Tempeh starter affects the end result of making tempeh. In traditional way, waru leaves can be used to produce starter by rubbing it into the soybeans which have been boiled and aerated. There are easy ways to make tempeh starter in traditional way. However, making starter in this way is increasingly rare, except in remote villages which are still difficult to reach. As a result, Raprima tempeh starter now is produced to be used as starter during the process of fermenting tempeh. Please read detail information about this starter here.

 

  1. The Cleanliness Of All Materials And Equipment Needed

The Cleanliness of Materials and Equipments

The Cleanliness of Materials and Equipments

In the process of making tempeh, cleanliness becomes the main matter. Materials, and all the equipment must also be in a clean condition. The soybeans should be washed, and the equipment used should also be in clean condition, dry and free from salt. Then if you use leaves to wrap the tempeh, make sure that it has been cleaned well. Don’t let the equipment used still contaminated with dirt, because the result of making tempeh will fail. Again, tools and materials used must be really clean because if there is contamination of other microbes there, it will disrupt the process of fermentation.

 

  1. The Temperature

Temperature

Temperature

In making tempeh, the temperature is very influential in determining whether or not the molds grow. The room temperature will effect on the development of fungus Rizhopus after the process of fermentation in soybeans. So, what temperature is suitable to grow the molds? The temperature needed for the mold to grow is the space between 26°C – 36°C. If the room temperature is too low, it will inhibit the growth of fungi. Meanwhile, if the temperature is too hot, it will cause overheating in the tempeh so the soybeans will be easy to rot.

 

  1. The Humidity

Humidity

Humidity

In addition to temperature, the humidity also plays an important role to let the molds of Rhizopus grow. The humidity of the air where the tempeh is stored can be critical to the success of tempeh. The sufficient moisture levels will help the mold easy to grow.

 

 

  1. The Boiling Of Soybeans

Boiling Process

Boiling Process

The soybeans to be used in manufacture of tempeh should be washed thoroughly and the skin must be removed. After that, we should boil the soybeans in long time enough until the soy is really soft.

 

  1. The Drying Of Soybeans

Drying Process

Drying Process

After the soybeans have been washed and the skin has been removed, the soybeans should be dried before the starter is given. If the soybean is not in dry enough condition, the fermentation process will fail and the soybeans will be easily rot.

 

  1. The Water Content

Water Content

Water Content

The amount of water content which is contained in the raw materials can also affects the success in making tempeh. If the water content is too much, what we worry about is not only tempeh molds which will grow, but it will also overgrown with decaying mushrooms.

  1. The Amount Of Starter Used

Starter

Starter

If we use too little tempeh starter to be mixed with soybeans, the result will not be maximal where the beans one with another will not stick perfectly. Conversely, if we use too much starter, it will damage the quality of tempeh because the number of molds that grow too much will accelerate the decay process.

Tempeh made with a good process will produce pure white tempeh with typical flavor of tempeh. Thus, if you are going to make your own tempeh, make sure that you already prepare everything well. Even, when you miss only one factor of those 9 factors, the result of making your own tempeh will also not maximal.

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

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

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.

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!
