Nutritional Difference Between Firm and Silken Tofu

Firm tofu (momendofu) is made by adding a coagulant, such as bittern, to soymilk and compressing it to solidify. It contains more iron, protein and calcium than silken tofu (kinudofu). On the other hand, it contains less vitamin Bs and potassium than silken tofu since water is squeezed out. These tofu are also different in texture. So, you can use them in your daily miso soups to your taste.

How to Store Tofu

A cake of tofu is often too much for miso soup for a meal. Place the remaining tofu in a container with enough water to cover tofu and store it in a refrigerator. Change the water everyday and use up the tofu in about 3 days at most before the expiration date.
