Tofu is made from soybean curds. It is naturally gluten-free and low in calories. It contains no cholesterol and is an excellent source of iron and calcium. It is an important source of protein, especially for vegans and vegetarians.
It can enhance the skin and hair, boost energy, and help maintain a healthy weight.
Research has linked tofu, with its high levels of isoflavones, to a lower risk of several age- and lifestyle-related diseases such as high heart disease and menopause.
