Tofu is made in much the same way as cheese, except that it is made from soya beans rather than milk. It is entirely plant-based. Nutrition-wise, tofu is in a league of it’s own. It is a complete source of protein, being one of the only food products that provide all eight essential amino acids. It contains no animal fats or cholesterol, is low on sodium, contains few calories, and is easy to digest. It is also an excellent source of iron and Vitamin B. And because calcium sulfate is used in the manufacturing process, it is a worthwhile source of calcium.
