Is Tofu Vegan?


  1. 0

    Yes. Tofu is made from soybean. It doesn’t contain any animal products or byproducts so it’s vegan.

    However, some people may find the taste of tofu too strong and bland to enjoy. Some companies have developed a new type of soy called “tofu cream” that has the texture of yogurt and has the same health benefits as traditional tofu. This is another option for you to try.

    Yes, tofu is 100% vegan. However, some people confuse tofu with the Chinese fermented soybean curd called tempeh.

    Both are made from soybeans, but tempeh is made from fermented soybeans while tofu is made from steamed and pressed soybeans.

    Tempeh is commonly made from soybeans that have been inoculated with Rhizopus oligosporus, a mold which breaks down the proteins in the soybeans into their individual amino acids, making tempeh a complete protein.

    Tofu is usually made from the outer layers of soybeans that have been steamed and pressed. It is then sliced, cut, or ground into smaller pieces.

    Tempeh and tofu are both delicious!
