My husband loved the PROTOSE that used to be made by Worthington foods. They haven't produced it for several years. Does anyone have a good recipe for it?

      Protose are sometimes available in smaller health food stores. On Long Island, there are several health food stores (I don't know their names) that may still have Protose. They are in Baldwin, Franklin Square, and Freeport.

        I've looked for it everywhere and it's gone.

        Does anyone still have a can and can post the ingredient list?

          I just tried this recipe and it didn't work out...the texture ended up more like a peanut butter pudding, and nothing like Protose! I'm thinking of trying it with Seitan instead of beans, and cutting back on the liquid (1 cup instead of 2) and using less peanut butter.

          I'm going to try this one from Ellen's Kitchen and see if I have better luck. She claims it's close:

          I miss my Protose! Curse those corproate bozos at Worthington!
