As an online seller of starter, we are tempebumbung, are always ready to send our product wherever it is. We are able to send our product to all regions in Indonesia and also throughout the world. This is our commitment to provide tempeh starter to those who need it no matter where they come from and where they live.

Unlike normal days, this time is a great moment for Muslims in the world to celebrate Idul Fitri, Holy Day of Eid Al-Fitr. We have long holidays about 7 days from date June 13, 2018 until June 19, 2018. So, what happen if there are some orders of starter on that day? Do we serve them?

 

Serving Tempeh Starter On Idul Fitri Day

Because it is a very great day for Muslims and there is always a kind of tradition we should do during Lebaran Day (Idul Fitri Day), we cannot serve our customer maximally. We still serve the order, but not as normal days. As we all know that during this Holy Day, the Indonesia shipping services are also closed for a while so that we cannot ship the packet.

Well, this is our experience of serving our customer from abroad who ordered tempeh starter to be sent to Jakarta Selatan where he has currently lived. On June 9, he sent us an email message saying that he needed 200gr tempeh starter to be sent one week later to his place. Then, we think that one week from that day will exactly on our Holy Day, Eid Al-Fitr.

Email message from our customer

In addition to send us email message, he also sent us message via WhatsApp messenger. But in this message, he asked different amount of starter which is 100gr and expected to get starter on 18 June, 2018. That day actually was still holiday but we tried to get information from the shipping cargo whether or not the shipping is done.

WA message from our customer

 

Sending Tempeh Starter To Jakarta Selatan

While we were gathering the information about the shipment, we prepared the packet to our customer. We didn’t forget to confirm our customer how many amount of starter he wanted, 100gr or 200gr. Our customer wanted 200gr but then, we realized that we run out of this amount. This was because the smallest package of our Raprima tempeh starter is actually 500gr. Since we didn’t prepare the smaller amount of re-packaging tempeh starter, we didn’t have the stock of it. We were sorry to him about this and we then offered him our tempeh starter with 500gr.

Our conversation via WA with our customer

 

He wondered how many price of it. Then, we calculate all of the total cost for 500gr tempeh starter to be sent to Jakarta Selatan. After our customer got the information needed, he finally ordered our Raprima tempeh starter with 500gr. On June 11, 2018 he transferred and then the next day, he transferred the shortage payment for it.

The evidence of the transfer

As you already read previously that our customer wanted the packet arrived at June 18. However, it is still holiday. We got the information from the cargo that the packet could be sent after the holiday. And this is what we also informed to our customer.

On June 13, 2018 we left the packet in the cargo. So, the packet would be sent after the holidays directly. We didn’t forget to inform our customer the tracking number of the packet so that he could check the location of his packet.

 

Tempeh Starter Order Finally Arrived

Waiting for almost a week, on June 19, 2018 we finally got a message from our customer. He said that the packet already arrived. We were so happy to heart that. It was not much longer than the day our customer expected.

Starter already arrived

 

When our customer got the starter and wanted to use it, he asked us few questions as you can see in the picture above. First, he asked whether the starter can be stored in the freeze or not. And second, the measurement of starter.

Well, you may already read the answer in our article at tempebumbung.wordpress.com. To keep starter, there are several ways you can do. For more details, please open our article : Is it possible to freeze the tempeh starter to make it last longer?

And then for the second question, he asked whether 1 tea spoon is used for per kg beans. Well, in the Raprima tempeh starter packaging, you can see the measurement but in Indonesian language. Here is the measurement of it in English:

  • 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

 

So, you only need 2gr tempeh starter for 1kg soybeans. Very small amount, isn’t it? Moreover, please also pay attention to the 9 factors that can influence the tempeh making process to make tempeh with good quality.

Consultation Session With A University Student From Malaysia To Complete Her Mini Research For Biology Subject Assessment

Tempeh is popular nowadays. That’s true. However, though it goes back ages in Indonesia, there are still several people who are still have never heard of this earthy mushroom plant protein that is a staple for vegans. Do you one of them?

Many people are more familiar with tofu than tempeh. Well, just like tofu, tempeh comes from soybeans but with a much different nutritional value and textural qualities. Tempe is a fermented soy products made by culturing and controlled fermentation process which binds the soybeans into a very firm cake.

The fermentation process along with its retention of the whole beans give tempeh a higher protein content, vitamins, and also dietary fiber compared to tofu. If we see from the firm texture, it is also perfect for grilling and frying.

 

So, What’s The Difference Between Tofu And Tempeh?

Tofu and Tempeh

Tempeh is truly not same as tofu. While they are both high protein meat alternatives, they are totally different from one another. The most noticeable difference is that tempeh is minimally processed using whole soybeans. Meanwhile, tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the curd into blocks.

How about texture? Tempeh is hearty and firm with a varied texture from the soybeans while the texture of tofu is soft and usually sold in varying degrees of firmness. SYou may need to read our article about tempeh vs tofu to see more about these products.

The Tempeh Wrapping

When you buy tempeh in the market, you can find tempeh which is wrapped by several kind of wrapping, commonly using plastics or leaf. Our customer who is from Malaysia also found some materials used to wrap tempeh in her country which were using plastics and leaves, mainly banana leaf. She also found some others include waru leaf and also teak leaf. (See article about waru leaf and teak leaf as starter here). Then, she asked other alternatives can be used in wrapping tempeh.

 

Message from Mrs. Ainna 2

Message from our customer from Malaysia

 

In Indonesia, plastics and leaves are commonly used to wrap tempeh. The use of leaves is believed can help tempeh smell fresh and fragrant. However, banana leafs existence is not always consistent. It can be easily found in rainy season but in dry season, it is quite hard to find. Unlike leaves, plastics are used usually by medium to big manufacturers because it is easy to get and simple to use. More information about plastics and leaves wrappers, please open which one is better: tempeh wrapped in leaves or in plastics?

For people who live in the area where the weather is dry like in Gunung Kidul, Indonesia, they usually use teak leaves as the alternative to wrap tempeh. It is because banana leaves are difficult to find. Then, the use of waru to wrap tempeh can actually produce starter so that people don’t need to use starter anymore. Nevertheless, the use of waru leaves nowadays is very rare.

 

So, Is There Any Alternatives Used In Wrapping Tempeh?

According to some tempeh-makers, there are hardly alternatives materials to wrap tempeh. However, if you are difficult to find banana leaves in your area, you can combine it with some papers. It can be newspaper, 0r other papers which are clean and dry.

But, how to combine? In order to keep the fragrant smell on tempeh, you should use banana leaf as the first layer. Thus, it will let tempeh has fresh smell when you cover it with this leaf. After that, you can use paper for the second layer to cover the tempeh perfectly.

You can use this way when banana leaf is inconsistent. Don’t forget to use only cleaned banana leaves and papers. This is included into one factor that can produce good quality of tempeh.

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.

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.

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:

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.
