Tempeh is known for its high level of protein which is highly digestable as result of the fermentation process. It contains B vitamins, minerals and is free of any cholesterol. However, it is not a reliable source of vitamin B12. Tempeh differs from tofu in that it contains more fiber because the whole soybean is used. In addition it contains phytochemicals such as isoflavones and saponins.
