The Magic of Tofu

Tofu

Tofu, also commonly known as bean curd, is made from soya beans through the process of curdling fresh soy milk. It’s essentially the same thing as soy milk, except in a more solid form, just like how cheese is made from milk!

As tofu is derived from soybeans, it is a great natural source of essential nutrients, especially protein. It’s also the only plant protein to contain all eight essential amino acids needed by the human body for healthy growth, making them “complete” proteins, just like egg whites and even chickens! In fact, many people might even be surprised to find that edamame, those healthy green beans you normally find in Japanese restaurants, are actually immature soy beans!

The best part is, not only is tofu an excellent source of protein, iron, calcium, and many other essential minerals, it is also naturally gluten-free and extremely low in calories, making it a great choice for those with allergies or trying to watch their weight. With that and its relatively neutral taste and various consistencies, it’s perfect as a dish on its own or as a component in all sorts of foods, even desserts and drinks! Grill it, boil it, steam it, or even blend it, tofu is great for creating a more balanced meal any time of the day.
