What is tempeh and should it have black spots?
Tempeh is a fermented soy product -- a cultured cake of soybeans and/or grains. Black “spots” on your tempeh (and white stuff in-between) are both mold, entirely normal and perfectly edible.
Tempeh is a fermented soy product, inoculated with Rhizophus oligosprorus, which is the species of mold used to ferment tempeh and bind the beans together. After we inoculate and incubate the beans, we steam the tempeh before we package, refrigerate and ship our tempeh. Tempeh’s fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher protein content, dietary fiber and vitamins compared to tofu, as well as firmer texture and stronger flavor. Because of its nutritional value, tempeh is used worldwide in vegetarian cuisine.
