Did you know tofu is one of the oldest foods in the world, and is the primary source of protein for over one billion people globally? Tofu, made from soybeans, is the only vegetable with a complete protein that contains all nine essential amino acids, has no cholesterol, and is low in saturated fat.
How is tofu made, you ask? Often called bean curd, Tofu is made by curdling soy milk (from soybeans) and then pressing the resulting curds into soft, white blocks. The process is similar to the way that cheese is made from whole milk.
Tofu is a great substitute for meat, which is a big trend right now in the food scene. More and more people are looking into meat alternatives, whether it is for human health, climate change, constraints on natural resources, and/or animal welfare. Tofu’s ability to soak up any flavor makes it a versatile protein that’s easy to incorporate into several recipes.
Melissa’s Organic Tofu is now available in 14 oz. sizing and is water packed in soft, firm, and extra firm, and our newest addition, super firm, is pre-pressed and vacuum-sealed. The difference from soft (good for soups, dips and dressing) all the way to super firm (good for pan- or deep-frying or grilling) is in the water content.
Kitchen shortcut: Super firm is the perfect choice for those looking for a firm tofu with added convenience — no need to press, just slice and prepare to your liking.
