I have a bag of dry soy beans. I'm going to attempt making my own tofu and save the soy milk. Will be interesting to see if it's success or a mess. I do love tofu and most all soy products. So does my son, maybe the way I prepare it.

ALWAYS make sure it is organic.

Where we currently live purchasing tofu is very limited and isn't always available. I just might have to try that recipe for making my own. Thanks

I think I might actually try tofu now that I understand what it is and how to choose and use it! I like that it will take on the flavor of the dish I use it in. Thanks for the basics!!

I was told to switch to soy products when I refused HRT in my early menopause, 20 years later I find out it is one of the major culprits in whacking out my thyroid along with other gmo products such as wheat, corn etc...Its not the soy itself, its the recent genetically altered varieties that is screwing things up...I have done a great deal of research on this. I am not expert but for myself I just steer clear of it.

This nutritional idea is excellent. Try my favorite california dinner Tofu, Miso soup. It's nice for lunch time and helps ease digestion.

I first tried tofu 30 years ago. Tried it a bazillion different ways. Never liked it. Thought it tasted like tasteless mush no matter how I seasoned/marinated/cooked it. Then I did some research on it and found how it screws up your thyroid and other hormones as well as most of it being genetically modified so farmers could spray more pesticides or herbicides on it without it dying.

So, finally found good reasons for not eating soy and not feeling guilty about not eating it.

I really love tofu....esp since living in Japan. However, I wanted to add ( sorry if already said I didn't feel like reading 50+ comments lol ) that it is so important that you choose an organic tofu at the grocery. Those that are not organic are most likely made of GMO soy and soooo not good for you. Have fun experimenting if you haven't yet, it's so good in Asian recipes!

This article is very lacking in adequate research. The only soy that is actually decent for you is fermented soy, of which tofu is not. Tempeh, miso, etc.,. Also, people with endocrine issues should NOT use soy regularly and should drastically limit their intake. Soy is not the health food it is being made out to be. Not to mention, 85% (and climbing) is a genetically modified product.

okay I understand the article, but the comments have me confused. Guess I will give it a try and see how my body reacts to it.
