How long does setian last NOT chilled?

Hay, I've been wondering how suitable seitan would be for hiking and backpacking without refrigeration. I have done google searches, but can't seem to find the info I need. Also, wondering if soaking in oil or salting it, and then vacuum sealing would help in any major way to help them keep.

Carnist: Someone who kills animals and then takes from their bodies.
Vegetarian: Someone who takes from animals' bodies, and then kills them when they are no longer profitable.
Vegan: Someone who tries to avoid unnecessary harm to animals as much as is possible and practicable.

I can't answer the question other than suggest you do some experiments with it.

It's fermented, so may (rather like yogurt) just get more fermented - I suspect personally it could get a bit funky. For hiking and backpacking, you could consider taking TVP mince, easily rehydrates in boiling water (if not my favourite thing).

On a related subject I've also been wondering about dehydrated soya milk for babies (soya infant formula - if it's good for babies I can't see why adults couldn't use it too?) as it's easy to source from my regular supermarket and should be fine for storing long term, or travelling with.

Tempeh is fermented, not seitan. Tempeh will spoil, it needs a particular strain that ferments it, kinda like when you make sourdough or yogurt you need the right kinds of bacteria.

I've been thinking that drying seitan would make it more stable, and I think a food vacuum sealer would be ideal. Like Primal Strips.

I have seen powdered soy milk sold as regular instant soy milk, rather than that made as formula. Never thought about the composition of soy infant formula for adults. Worth looking into I'd think!

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
