What is tofu?

Tofu is a super healthy plant-based protein. It’s made from soya bean curd, which sounds a bit weird but is actually amazing. It’s one of the most complete and versatile protein foods in the world. Tofu has a subtle flavour, allowing it to be a taste chameleon – taking on the flavour of any dish it goes in.

Origins of soya

The soya bean plant is native to China, where it has been cultivated for a very, very long time, well over 13,000 years. It was an essential crop for the ancient Chinese who regarded it a necessity for life (we are with you on that).

Soya beans were introduced into other regions of Asia centuries later and it wasn’t until the early 20th century that it began to be used for more than animal feed in the West.

The soya bean is now the most widely grown and utilised legume worldwide – High Five!
