|Freeze-dried tofu is one of the world's most concentrated sources of high quality vegetable protein. Six times as concentrated as regular tofu, freeze-dried tofu has twice the protein of fish, beef, and chicken, and none of the cholesterol. What's more, with a full complement of essential amino acids, the quality of its protein is comparable to that of meat and dairy foods. Freeze-dried tofu is also a concentrated source of iron, calcium, and phosphorus. Since freeze-dried tofu is a concentrated soy food, it shares many of the medicinal benefits of other soy products such as protection against various forms of degenerative disease including cancer and cardio-vascular disease. For more information about the benefits of soy foods, see the miso section of this web site.
