Is this the same soy protein you can get in health stores, or is this
a different thing ?

Hi, Irma. According to Rytek Kuta's "Great Sausage Recipes and Meat
Curing", p. 158, Soy Protein Concentrate has 250% more protein than meat.
USDA regulations limit its use to 3.5% per 100 lbs of sausage. I've had the
book for almost 25 years and highly recommend it.

Nick. Support severely wounded and disabled Veterans and their families!
I've known US vets who served as far back as the Spanish American War. They
are all my heroes! Thank a Veteran and Support Our Troops. You are not
forgotten. Thanks ! ! ~Semper Fi~
