Tempeh is a traditional fermented soyfood native to Central Java, Indonesia; tempeh is prepared by salt-free aerobic fermentation using Rhizopus. Similar to miso, tempeh is also reported to be antioxygenic. In this study, we used a tempeh-like fermented soybean. First, soybean was incubated aerobically and then successively incubated anaerobically. Because the γ-amino butyric acid (GABA) content was increased remarkably, we named this tempeh GABA-tempeh. The contents of other free amino acids… Expand
Effect of fermentation time on the antioxidant activities of tempeh prepared from fermented soybean using Rhizopus oligosporus
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of fermentation time on the antioxidant activity of tempeh, a fermented product from soybean. Rhizopus oligosporus was used to ferment soybeanExpand
Tempeh extract reduces cellular ROS levels and upregulates the expression of antioxidant enzymes

Hypocholesterolemic Effects of Soybean and Sweet Lupine Tempeh in Hypercholesterolemic Rats
Tempeh obtained from soybean or sweet lupine, in particular, the high level (7%) significantly improved the levels of lipid profiles, activity of liver enzymes, concentrations of uric acid and urea nitrogen as well as induced a better protective effect in the hepatocytes, consequently, the two types of tempeh exhibited hypocholesterolemic, anti-atherogenic and hepatoprotective effects.
