Why should you take the pledge? It’s all about Tofulosophy.
Nasoya® began its love affair with tofu in 1978, when the company’s two founders began producing tofu in a barn in Leominster, MA. Vitasoy USA, Inc. acquired the small, organic brand in 1990, enabling Nasoya to bring tofu to food lovers nationwide.
In the midst of our healthy obsession with tofu, we were surprised to discover a robust community of tofu lovers. But many admit they don’t know what to do with it. While most will order tofu at a restaurant or enjoy it at a friend’s house, they have trouble cooking it at home.
So we developed the Nasoya Tofulosophy: a new outlook on tofu, empowering you to embrace the healthy protein into your kitchen. Discover the history of tofu and the mighty soybean behind it. Uncover the environmental benefits it brings to our earth. Learn the many health benefits and make your body sing! Become a tofu extraordinaire by watching quick video tips, cook simple and healthy tofu recipes and more! Best of all, have fun while conquering your fears about the mysterious white block we call tofu.
The basics of Nasoya’s Tofulosophy include:
History of Tofu and the Soybean
The oldest evidence of tofu production is a Chinese mural incised on a stone slab. It shows a kitchen scene that proves that soymilk and tofu were being made in China during the period A.D. 25-220! Nasoya likes to mix the old with the new with great recipes like Garden Veggie Tofu Scramble, Tofu Tacos and even Tofu Lasagna.
Environmental Benefits of Tofu and Soybeans
Growing, harvesting, and processing soybeans has less impact on the environment than raising livestock for protein. Our soybean producers use conservation practices that improve water quality, reduce soil erosion, enhance soil quality, increase wildlife habitat, and reduce greenhouse gas production.
Health benefits of Tofu
Tofu keeps you full, satisfied and full of energy with no to little saturated fat and is the only source of complete protein. Even animal based proteins don’t stack up to the power of the mighty soybean! Tofu is cholesterol-free, low in fat and calories (with zero saturated fat), rich in protein, and provides bone-healthy minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Learn how eating tofu may help with heart health, diabetes, maintaining healthy weight, bone health and overall health by visiting the healthy living section on nasoya.com.
