Tasty Facts About Tofu

What is Tofu? 1 of 8

You've heard about it before, and maybe even tried it, but how much do you really know about tofu? This amazingly versatile food is made of soybean curd, which is a soft substance created by curdling soymilk. To curdle efficiently, one of these coagulants is required:

  • Nigari (contained in seawater)
  • Calcium sulfate
  • Vinegar

Once curdles have formed, they are compressed into the familiar solid block of tofu that many know and love.
