Sow oriental spices were inspired by the traditional Chinese five spices. During ancient China, five spices were frequently referred to as the "magic spices". The ancients used them to create a perfect taste balance of sweet, bitter, sour, salty, and pungent.
Coming from southern China, I grew up eating my grandma's food. She often cooked meat with traditional Chinese five spices. After turning to plant-based, I realised that I didn't miss the "meaty" flavour, rather the spices and juicy texture of food. So we decided to remake my grandma's recipe with plant-based protein.
If you like far-east asian cuisine, or keen to try new flavours, this one is definitely for you. They are chewy, flavourful and exotic.
Toss them into your meals during cooking.
You can also microwave for 10-20 seconds and add them as toppings to your favourite dishes.

Please store in the fridge.
Alternatively, you can transfer your Sow Protein Bites into freezer bags and store them in the freezer. They can last over 1 month in the freezer.

I bought four packs and these little cubes taste perfect with everything! We took the package out for picnic! Love the flavour!
Sow Protein is very inclusive —— it goes well with various kinds of foods; Sow Protein is very nutritious —— it makes you refreshed at any time; Sow Protein is eco-friendly——it protects the earth we love deeply. In a word, Sow Protein is what we need!!! :D
I’m not vegetarian/vegan but Sow Oriental Spices is so delicious that I would choose it over meat. It is chewy, juicy and tasty! As a Chinese I am really impressed by its Chinese Five Spices flavour. It makes me feel like home and reminds me of those times when my mom cooked traditional dishes for our family.
I like high protein plant-based food and have tried many others like Beyond Meat and Quorn Pieces, and Sow Protein way exceeds my expectations. It goes on well with many dishes. I just improvise and add these protein chunks to my meals whenever I like. But my favourite way of enjoying Sow Protein is SNACKING;) especially when I want to boost my energy during busy hours without feeling sleepy (-, - )…zzzZZZ
These soy protein chunks are so chewy and packed with amazing umami flavours! I've found them go well with different kinds of dishes, such as pasta, noodles and rice. I like to just sprinkle some on top of my everyday one-bowl/plate meals, which always bring a delicious kick of flavour. Plus they also elevate the whole nutrition level by adding extra protein. I even like to enjoy them straight from the bag as energy bites in the busy afternoons :D
I love these protein bites! The flavours are great and the service is amazing. I’ll continue to purchase my sow food protein bites fix on a regular basis!
Quality and delicious products.
Great experience, and great taste. Product tasted very good and travelled well with delivery. Already looking forward to the next one ☺️.
Much like the smoky paprika flavour, I bought them with the intention of adding to dishes. I enjoyed snacking on these a bit too much with a glass of red wine! The salty warm heat of these is divine. Looking forward to getting some more!
Absolutely delicious! Tastes like beef jerky (肉干)and it’s vegan! It can go with rice and can be eaten as a snack. Reminds me of authentic Chinese food you could only really get in Asia!
Best soy product I've tasted. Such fantastic 5-spice flavouring, wonderfully seasoned umami saltiness and great with any asian dishes!
