Why is my Tempeh Black? – (Tempeh Sporulation)
Tempeh is a fungus, like other fungi tempeh releases spores. Sometimes when you buy tempeh you may see black dark discoloration. This is not spoilage but in fact, it is the tempeh trying to reproduce itself! Tempeh is grown from a starter culture (which is sporulated tempeh that has been ground up & dried) This starter culture inoculates the fresh substrate ( beans) and a new growth cycle begins! The tempeh then sporulates again and is either eaten or made into starter culture.
Sometimes Tempeh can appear slimy and smelly some describe it as sour dewy or fishy this is also a normal occurrence.
If your tempeh has any red or orange discoloration discard it. That is the only tell tale sign of contamination.

¿Por qué mi Tempe Black? – (esporulación de tempe) El tempe es un hongo, al igual que otros hongos, el tempe libera esporas. A veces, cuando compra tempe, puede ver decoloración negra oscura. Esto no es un deterioro, pero de hecho, ¡es la temperata que intenta reproducirse! Tempe se cultiva a partir de un cultivo iniciador (que es tempe esporulado que se ha molido y secado) Este cultivo iniciador inocula el sustrato fresco (frijoles) y comienza un nuevo ciclo de crecimiento. El tempe luego esporula nuevamente y se come o se convierte en cultivo iniciador. A veces, Tempe puede parecer viscoso y maloliente, algunos lo describen como rocío agrio o a pescado, esto también es una ocurrencia normal. Si su tempe tiene decoloración roja o naranja, deséchela. Esa es la única señal reveladora de contaminación.
