Meskipun sama-sama terbuat dari kedelai, kandungan protein pada tempe ternyata lebih tinggi dari pada kandungan protein pada tahu. Menurut beberapa penelitian, kandungan protein pada tempe sebesar 15,4 gram, sedangkan protein pada tahu hanya sekitar 10 gram saja. Perbedaan kandungan protein ini disebabkan karena proses pembuatan tempe lebih sedikit dari pada pembuatan tahu. Proses pembuatan tempe hanya meliputi pengukusan kedelai, pengelupasan kulit ari, dan pemberian ragi. Kemudian tempe disimpan dalam wadah tertutup selama beberapa hari. Namun pada proses pembuatan tahu sedikit lebih rumit karena setelah kedelai direbus harus dihaluskan terlebih dahulu dan diambil saripatinya. Saripati kedelai akan dicampur dengan biang dan kemudian disimpan selama beberapa hari. Karena perbedaan proses pembuatannya menyebabkan kadar protein antara tahu lebih rendah dari pada protein tempe.

Even though both are made from soy, protein content in tempeh is actually higher than protein content in tofu. According to some research, protein content in tempeh is 15.4 gram while in tofu is only 10 gram. The difference of protein content is because of tempeh making process is much simpler than tofu making. Tempeh making process only includes steaming soy bean, sloughing the epidermis, and giving yeast. Then, tempeh will be stored in closed container and be kept for some days. On the other hands, tofu making process is slightly more complicated because after steaming process, the soy bean will be grounded to get soy bean curd.
