What is Tempeh?

Tempeh is a traditional Indonesian fermented soybean product that has gained popularity worldwide for its nutritional benefits and versatility in cooking. Tempeh has a dense, cake-like texture with a nutty flavor and is rich in protein, fiber, and various nutrients, making it a popular choice for vegetarians, vegans, and those seeking plant-based protein sources. It can be sliced, marinated, grilled, stir-fried, or crumbled, offering endless possibilities for culinary creativity. With its earthy taste and firm texture, tempeh adds depth and substance to a wide range of dishes, from salads and sandwiches to curries and stir-fries.

Our Story

Mayasari Effendi embarked on her American journey in 2002 to pursue higher education at Purdue University. Together with her husband, she ventured into the culinary world, establishing the first and only Indonesian restaurant, Mayasari Indonesian Grill, nestled in Greensburg, Indiana in 2012.

With a passion for cooking deeply rooted in her heart, Maya's culinary creations are inspired by her Indonesian heritage, particularly her love for tempeh. Even before the inception of the restaurant, Maya was crafting her own tempeh, leveraging the abundance of soybeans from the surrounding farms.

As demand for her tempeh grew steadily, Maya expanded her reach, offering her flavorful creations not only in her restaurant but also in local Asian stores and online. What sets Mayasari's tempeh apart is her unique blend of high protein non-GMO and High Oleic soybeans, delivering a perfect balance of muscle maintenance and cholesterol reduction.

This dedication to quality extends to Mayasari's Protein Tempeh Chips, which not only boast exceptional health benefits but also tantalizing flavors. Catering to diverse dietary preferences, including vegans, vegetarians, health-conscious individuals, athletes, and those with dietary restrictions, our products align with the growing trend toward plant-based and sustainable living.

Central to our character is a commitment to sustainable farming practices and fair trade, sourcing fresh, high-quality ingredients from local farmers to support and uplift local agriculture. By prioritizing freshness, health, and sustainability, Mayasari Effendi brings a taste of Indonesia to the heart of Indiana, one delicious tempeh chip at a time.
