Tofu is also known as bean curd. It is prepared by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into solid white blocks of varying softness. Which can be silken, soft, firm, or extra firm. Beyond these broad categories, there are many more varieties.

It has a subtle flavor, so it can be used in savory and sweet dishes. It is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish and its flavors, and absorbs flavors well. It is sometimes treated as a meat substitute.

Tofu is relatively high in protein, about 10.7% for firm tofu and 5.3% for soft “silken”, with about 5% and 2% fat, respectively, as a percentage of weight.
