Posted by Boston Organics on Jan 15, 2021 12:03:29 PM

Heiwa Tofu is a small family business in beautiful Rockport, Maine. Since 2008, they have been committed to creating pure and wholesome foods that they can share with their community.


Tofu is a great source of protein. If you're looking to decrease your meat consumption for environmental or ethical purposes, tofu might be a great substitute for you.

According to Medical News Today, here's how tofu stacks up against other protein sources:

Tofu (hard or firm) Walnuts  Salmon  Chicken (boneless, skinless breast)
122 grams of tofu contains 15.57 grams of protein 30 grams of walnuts contains 5 grams of protein 85 grams of salmon contains 18.79 grams of protein 3.5 oz of chicken contains 31 grams of protein
13% protein 17% protein 22% protein 31% protein


Heiwa (hay-wa; meaning 'peace' in Japanese) Tofu uses soy beans that are organic, non-GMO grown on Maine and New England farms. Soy beans are soaked and ground into a slurry. It is then cooked with water and then squeezed to make soymilk. The soymilk is then curdled   into a soy bean curd (aka tofu!). The curd is pressed into slabs of tofu and then cut into the rectangular blocks that you get in deliveries!
