TVP (textured vegetable protein) - NCCDB dry or prepared?
My friend made me some vegan chili using TVP. I'm trying to guess on how to add this to my diary without over or underestimating the amount I'm eating. In the NCCDB, it's listed as "Textured Vegetable Protein, TVP, From Dry, Not Fortified." Since it says "from dry," does that mean that the measurements listed are after it's prepared, not while it's dry? My rough guess is that there's about a cup of prepared TVP. I know she used the dry granules. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to list how of the dry product she used before it was prepared or if I just use the prepared amount. I haven't cooked with it myself yet, so I'm not sure how much expands when cooking. Thanks!
