Tofu

Tofu is a whole food made from soy milk turned into curd and pressed into soft white blocks. It is naturally gluten free and low calorie. Due to its easy eatability and nutritional value, tofu is a staple food in Asia, and has been incorporated into mainstream American diets. Tofu is an excellent source of calcium and a very good source of manganese, copper, selenium, protein, and phosphorus. In addition, tofu contains omega-3 fatty acids, iron, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B1. Tofu is a complete source of dietary protein, providing all the essential amino acids needed!

Tofu has been credited with:

  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Aiding in weight loss
  • Reducing risk of heart disease
  • Improving bone density and reducing risk of fractures
  • Decreasing incidence of breast cancer and lung cancer

As if the nutritional benefits weren’t enough to have tofu be a regular part of your diet, tofu is very easy to cook with. Here’s the thing about tofu. It has fantastic nutrition but very little flavor. Therefore it lends it’s pleasing texture to a variety of foods and easily absorbs the flavor of the accompanying spices and marinades. It comes ready-to-eat in three different consistencies for you to easily use.
