• What is Tofu?

    Tofu is made from soya bean curd and is one of the most complete and versatile protein foods in the world.

  • What is ClearSpot Tofu?

    Very simply soya beans, water & nigari.

    We do not use any additives, preservatives, emulsifiers or stabilisers.

  • How is our ClearSpot Tofu made?

    Our actual recipe is a secret, but essentially our 100% organic soy beans are cooked, whizzed up to create soya milk and then nigari is gently stirred in to help form the bean curd. After this our tofu maker scoops the curd into a muslin cloth lined settling box, tops with a pressing lid and heavy weight and its left to rest for a while. During this time the curds are firmed and we ensure it is s pressed for just the right amount of time to get just the right firmness and texture to our delicious tofu.

  • Source of ingredients?

    All of our ingredients are 100% organic and our soya beans are GM free.

    We are proud to be certified by the Soil Association.

  • What are soya beans?

    Soya beans are pulses, a leguminous plant, similar to peas, lentils and beans.

    They are known in China as “ta-tou” or “great beans”.

  • What is Nigari?

    We use nigari to help turn soya milk into tofu.

    Nigari is a natural ingredient which helps to turn the soymilk into curds. Nigari is the liquid that remains after natural sea salt is extracted from sea water.

    Some other tofu manufacturers use Calcium Sulfate (an inorganic compound that is also used to make plaster of Paris), but we don’t think that is right in food!
