This unique organic, protein rich and low fat product has the potential to change the way we view Tofu in the UK. Clearspring Organic long life Tofu is made with just three ingredients: organic whole soya beans, spring water from Mount Fuji and Nigari- a naturally occurring mineral rich coagulant derived from sea water. Denser and richer than other soft tofu it has a silky soft, smooth texture whilst maintaining firmness. It is very easy to use and tastes as good as fresh tofu.
We have always focused on developing new innovative organic foods which combine tradition with convenience, economical production with ecological sustainability and quality without compromise. It took several years to develop this creamy smooth Long Life Organic Tofu in line with these principles.
Made with just three ingredients:
- Premium quality whole organic soya beans which are specially contract grown for Clearspring. By law this means that the soya beans have to be sustainably cultivated, grown without the use of artificial fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and cannot be Genetically Modified. Organic certification also means that the tofu production process does not permit commonly used processing aids such as defoamers, bleaches or preservatives.
- Nigari, a naturally occurring mineral rich coagulant derived from sea water. The base of nigari is magnesium chloride which makes tofu a good source of both magnesium and chloride.
- Pure spring water from Mount Fuji.
Types of tofu
There are two main types of tofu available: silken and hard. Silken tofu is produced by coagulating soya milk without curdling it and is normally available in two consistencies: soft and firm. Clearspring organic tofu falls in the latter category. Both are however more creamy, smooth and delicate than hard tofu which is drained and pressed and therefore more robust.
