Hello lovely PPkers,

I'm currently out of my home state visiting a friend. She is not at all vegan and finds most of what I eat weird, but she bought a package of tempeh saying she was going to cook me something while I'm here. I don't think we'll get around to it, and so I was wondering if I could take it home with me? If I don't it will get thrown away. Between the drives, waiting in the airport, and flight, it will be un-refrigerated for about 7 hours. Will it go bad? Will it travel ok if I put it in my checked luggage? What if I put it in her freezer until I leave; if it's frozen when I take it will it stay good? I don't travel much so I don't know much about taking food. Thanks so much!

It'll be fine as long as it's still within the eat by date range. I always take Tofurky tempeh strips home from the US to the UK and I've never had any go bad. Freezing it is definitely a good option, wrap it in a t-shirt or two in the middle of your checked bag and it'll probably still be pretty frozen by the time you're home.

Yeah I'd definitely eat tempeh that had been unrefrigerated for that long. Jojo gives good advice about the freezing and wrapping.

I was going to suggest your freezing idea. I think it will be fine that way.

Great, thanks everyone! I really appreciate the help. I will throw it in the freezer today.
