Our producer has been dedicated to perfecting Tofu since 1973 and produces Clearspring’s unique-recipe tofu using only 3 ingredients: fresh water, whole soya beans and nigari (a naturally occurring mineral-rich coagulant derived from seawater).
We have always focused on developing new innovative organic foods which combine tradition with convenience, economical production with ecological sustainability and quality without compromise. It took several years to develop this creamy smooth Long Life Organic Tofu in line with these principles.
Made with just three ingredients:
- Premium quality whole organic soya beans which are specially contract grown for Clearspring. By law this means that the soya beans have to be sustainably cultivated, grown without the use of artificial fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and cannot be Genetically Modified. Organic certification also means that the tofu production process does not permit commonly used processing aids such as defoamers, bleaches or preservatives.
- Nigari, a naturally occurring mineral rich coagulant derived from sea water. The base of nigari is magnesium chloride which makes tofu a good source of both magnesium and chloride.
- Fresh water.
Types of tofu
There are two main types of tofu available: silken and hard. Silken tofu is produced by coagulating soya milk without curdling it and is normally available in two consistencies: soft and firm. Clearspring organic tofu falls in the latter category. Both are however more creamy, smooth and delicate than hard tofu which is drained and pressed and therefore more robust.
