TOFU QUALITIES TOFU
(Soy Paneer) is a Japanese word; the earliest known appearance was in 1182. A ‘true democrat in spirit’ tofu presents the same face to rich and poor alike. Placed before nobility in East Asia finest haute cuisine it is humble and unpretentious. Served up as peasant fare in rustic farmhouses, it is equally at home. Since earliest times the people of East Asia have honoured in poems and proverb, known as ‘Meat of the Fields’.
TOFU AS A HIGH FOOD PROTEIN COMPLEMENTARY
Tofu is an excellent food to use in combining proteins since it contains an abundance of lysine, an essential amino acid that is deficient in other grain products. By serving foods such as tofu and wholegrain bread or rice at the same meal and combining them in the correct ratios, we are able, in effect, to ‘create’ new protein at no extra cost. For example, by serving 3 and half ounces tofu together with one and a quarter cups brown rice, we obtain 32% more protein than if we served these foods separately. Therefore, tofu’s unique amino acid composition makes it not only a basic protein source, but also a truly remarkable protein booster!
