Tofu is packed with proteins and contains most essential amino acids. It is a great source of proteins on any form of diet. Apart from this, tofu contains phyto-estrogen (not to be confused with estrogen) which guard the body against breast cancer. Unlike animal based proteins such as meat, tofu is derived from soy which has higher digestibility and does not create an acidic environment in the stomach. Tofu is also free from cholesterol and bad fatty acid unlike meat/eggs.
Soya-based foods like tofu can be an invaluable part of your diet. Believed to help lower levels of bad cholesterol. Given its neutral taste and range of consistency, tofu has an amazing ability to work with almost all types of flavours and foods. It is a good source of protein and contains all nine essential amino acids.
