Hi folks!<br>
So I've recently discovered tempeh but it seems to give me horrible stomach pains. Since I eat tofu and soy products sans negative results, it can't be the soy bean aspect?! Are some methods of cooking it or some kinds ( are there even kinds ? ) more stomach friendly than others? Sad discovery since it's actually 'meant' to be very stomach friendly indeed!<br>
Does it make anybody else sick ?<br>
( I don't think it's what I've been cooking it with, as that's varied. It may not be tempeh at all considering I'm basing this on two attempts , yet I'm a bit wary to try again.. ) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

Tempeh is soy fermented with a special fungus, so it could be the fungus that you're reacting to.

are you simmering it first for about 15 minutes? I actually don't like it unless it is. Can't say it has given me problems, but if you aren't, I'd give that a try....that way, it's already been cooked for 15 minutes prior to whatever else you're going to do with it.

Tempeh disagrees with me, and other soy products do not. It doesn't matter if I boil it or steam it. It still gives me bad indigestion.

I usually eat my tempeh by splitting it half for tomorrow<br><br>
Marinate it with little soy sauce for a while then steam it, at one time i even bake it in oven.. so yummy

This is exactly what I was going to say. I have recently been unable to consume anything fermented or containing probiotics for the same reason. I was going heavy on raw sauerkraut and tempeh for a few weeks until stomach pains sent me to a gastoenterologist. At the time I didnt make the connection because I had eaten both of these at various times, but I really over did it and that's just me, I'm sure others are even more sensitive.
