Want to know more about the health benefits of tofu?
Tofu is made from the curd of soy bean milk and is a popular protein source for vegans and vegetarians. Soy has also been a controversial product, with conflicting studies on risks and benefits. This may be due to the huge variances in the product itself. For example, good quality whole food tofu made from organic soy beans is a very different product to widely consumed highly processed version, involving chemical solvents from genetically modified soy beans. In addition, many of the negative studies relate to soy extracts such as isolates and soy protein concentrate. For further exploration of the soy debate, please visit our website.
As well as its high protein content, tofu is also rich in calcium, manganese, copper, selenium, magnesium, iron and thiamin (Vitamin B1) as well as being a plentiful source of a variety of antioxidant phytonutrients.
