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