Traditionally, tofu is made by soaking, crushing, and cooking soybeans into a soymilk or “slurry,” then adding a coagulant. The soymilk coagulates into a large block of tofu that is cut into smaller blocks and packed in water-filled tubs. The trick however is the kind of coagulating process you use. We use the ancient Japanese process which makes our tofu unique and guarantees a pure product that tastes as fresh as the day it was made
Extra Firm can be used for stir-fry, noodles and pastas. Firm works well for scramblers and desserts, and Soft is great for dips and smoothies. Soft can be had in salads, stuffed paranthas and bhurjis.

HOW MUCH TOFU SHOULD I CONSUME EACH DAY?
At Health on Plants, we believe a well-rounded diet — including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables with addition of protein rich foods– is a healthy diet. Having tofu twice or thrice a week is recommended to top up your clean protein needs. Please note, Japan and throughout much of Asia, tofu is consumed on a daily basis. If you have questions about the diet that best suits you and your lifestyle, please consult your personal physician.
I’VE HEARD A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS ABOUT TOFU, BUT ALSO SOME NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT SOY. WHAT ARE THE FACTS?
Tofu was one of the first processed foods known to humans. It has been consumed for well over a thousand years. It has stood the test of time and gained a well-deserved reputation in Asian medical and culinary circles. With reports lately about soy’s health benefits, some people believe more of a good thing would be better. Not necessarily so! Many companies are trying to pack higher numbers of soy isoflavones into pricey supplement pills. We believe the best way to get nutrients and sub-nutrients is the natural way – in real food. Tofu is excellent as a top-up to meet your protein needs but it is not a meal replacement. Tofu is proven safe and effective over centuries of use.
