I'm following a bulking up diet, and I recently found this amazing product that, as it comes from processed soy, is really high in protein (nearly 50% of its raw/dehydrated state) and contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it unique between other plant-based protein sources. My question is: I find everywhere that TVP/TSP needs to be reconstituted/rehydrated in order to be consumed and, as soybeans are harmful to the human body in its raw state, the same rule is applied to the one I mentioned before? Much appreciated.

Yes, you'll need to rehydrate it or at least add it to recipes that have a certain amount of moisture, for example chili or tomato sauce for pasta. TVP isn't raw, it's extruded (a high heat process) and dehydrated, so it's not relevant to whatever it is about soybeans being harmful raw. Honestly never heard that before, but shelled beans aren't typically eaten raw anyway.
