In addition , the processing procedure must be done carefully . Tempeh -making process is basically the process of growing mold spores tempeh , namely Rhizopus sp . , On soybean seed .

In its growth , Rhizopus sp . forming threads called hyphae thread . The hyphae threads tying kedalai seeds with each other soy beans , soy beans that form a compact mass . Soybean mass was then referred to as tempeh .

During the growth period , the fungus Rhizopus sp . also produce enzymes that can break down the protein contained in soy beans , so that the protein - protein in soybean seeds is easily digested . During the period of the growth of fungus Rhizopus sp . In addition to Rhizopus , predicted many other possible types mkiroorganisme intervene , but did not show significant activity .

However , the real activity of microorganisms that may interfere will look after the activities of the growth of Rhizopus sp . beyond the optimum period , ie, after the formation of new spores white - black . It can be seen , especially on the left tempeh or stored at room temperature , ie with a strong smell of ammonia . The smell of ammonia in the tempe tempe showed that began to decay . The ammonia smell is still felt even tempeh has been cooked , so it can reduce consumer tastes .

2 . Tempeh ( inoculum RAPRIMA ) or pure cultures of Rhizopus sp .

3 . Plastic bags or banana leaves , or leaves of teak .


Wash winnowing , sieve , and cukil fan to be used , then dried .
Clean the soybeans of other materials are mixed , then wash thoroughly.
Soak the soy beans were washed for 12-18 hours with normal cold water ( hydration process that soybeans absorb water as much as possible ) .

Prepare plastic bags or banana leaves , or leaves of teak to pembungkus. If plastic bags are used for packaging , give small holes in the bag using a stick or fork .
Put soy tempeh that has been given ( RAPRIMA ) into the wrapper , set its thickness according to taste
The soy bean fermentation process at room temperature for one or two days or until the entire surface is covered mushroom soy .
Note :

1.Perhatikan workplace hygiene and cleanliness of equipment will improve the quality of work produced tempeh .
2 . Warmer room temperatures accelerate the fermentation process the fungus in soybean .
