Nasoya Wins "Best Tofu"

Ayer, MA – Nov. 9, 2009 – Nasoya has been voted “Best Tofu” in the “2009 Veggie Awards” hosted by Veg News magazine. The organic tofu has won the award for seven years running.

“We spent the past 12 months with ears to the ground, determined to discover the greatest innovators, movers, shakers, and newsmakers in the wide world of vegetarianism. The result? A jam-packed list of the hottest people, products, and more, taking their rightful places in the plant-based spotlight,” stated VegNews magazine on its website www.vegnews.com.

One of the 41 winners selected by 195,000 readers in 38 countries, Nasoya has long-held the record of most popular tofu in America. In fact, Nasoya was among the first tofu to be available in America more than 30 years ago. Since then, its support by consumers has made it the number one tofu brand in the nation and one of the premium brands of soyfoods pioneer Vitasoy USA.

Tofu is a complete vegetable protein that contains all nine amino acids needed by the human body. Unlike animal protein, it contains no cholesterol and is low in saturated fat, while providing important Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
