Nasoya Lite Silken Tofu Review

Nasoya Lite Silken TofuI was at Whole Foods the other day stocking up on deli meats, cereal, and yogurt when I noticed that Nasoya Tofu products were on sale. Curious, I picked up a package of the Nasoya Lite Silken Tofu to examine it. The first thing that struck me about this tofu (which is certified organic by the way), was how big it was - this is some hefty stuff! I've been burned before in buying a block of tofu that I thought was all good stuff and turned out to be filled with copious amounts of tofu water instead - NOT true with this; the whole package is crammed with the tofu.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 91 grams
Calories: 30
Total Fat: 1 gram, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 65 mg, 3%
Carbohydrates: 0 grams
Protein: 6 grams

My eyes then moved to the nutrition facts, and I was quite pleased with what I saw. One serving, or 1/5 of the huge package, provides just 30 calories, 1 gram of fat, 3% of the daily value for sodium, 6 grams of protein and no carbohydrates. That serving is also fortified with quite a few vitamins and minerals, including 84% of the DV for iron. Wowza - the entire block is just 150 calories and provides 30 grams of protein.

I popped it into my cart and brought it up to the register, where it rang up at $2.67. At home, I opened it up right away, eager to try it out. What I found was a pleasing texture - substantial enough to make into a good pudding, mousse, or shake - and a delicious, not overwhelming taste. I tried a bit on its own first and it was good - a bit bland, but a great base for a meal or dessert, then I used the rest to make some chocolate pudding with a side helping of nutrients. Delicious!

The ingredients in Nasoya Lite Silken Tofu are water, organic whole soybeans, soy protein, tricalcium phosphate, calcium sulfate, magnesium chloride, vitamin E acetate, vitamin A acetate, vitamin D2, and vitamin B12. This tofu has no preservatives and no genetically engineered ingredients, and it's gluten-free and kosher as well. I will most definitely be buying this again. what are some of the ways you use silken tofu?
