      Julio Maza grew up in a meat-eating Cuban-American family. But after
      enjoying tasty morsels of mock beef, chicken, ham, fish and shrimp at
      a cookout 10 years ago, he became a vegetarian almost overnight.

      Maza became friends with some Taiwanese folks he met at the cookout
      and traveled with them to Taiwan, absorbing the Taoist philosophy of
      balance in life and diet. When he returned to Miami he became the
      manager of a vegetarian meat company;after it closed, he started his
      own, Harmony International.

      Most sales are through his website, but he also works health festivals
      and Jamaican music jamborees, as Rastafarians are vegetarians and love
      his products. He also supplies restaurants and specialty markets.

      The soy meats are imported frozen from various manufacturers in
      Taiwan, made from processed soy protein, wheat gluten (seitan),
      seaweed, konnyaku yam powder, mushrooms, vegetables and spices with no
      garlic, onion, MSG or preservatives. They are less bland than
      supermarket meat substitutes, with a smoky, decidedly Asian flavor and
      a pleasing texture.

      Also called Buddha's meat, these products were conceived in Buddhist
      monasteries in China 2,000 years ago. They were a must in a religion
      that prohibited the taking of life and in a culture where hospitality
      required pleasing guests who enjoyed the taste of meat.
