History says tofu was created by accident in China by a cook who added some sea salt to mashed soybeans. The curdled substance solidified and became the first tofu. Today, Aloha Tofu Factory manufactures soft and firm tofu in 20 ounce sizes in our Akepo Lane facility daily.
Aloha Tofu’s Firm Tofu is the most versatile form of tofu because it soaks up flavor like a sponge and holds it shape whether it is fried, broiled, grilled, or boiled. This dense, protein-rich tofu can be used in stir-fry, soups, chili’s, stews, and grills. The tofu absorbs the flavor of anything it’s seasoned with; soy sauce, tomato sauce, or cheese. It boosts the protein count of a recipe and can take the place of beef, chicken, shrimp, or pork, in Italian, Mexican, and Indian foods.

Firm tofu blocks are sliced in thin layers and quickly deep-fried. The resulting product can be triangle or square shaped and naturally split open to make a shell for sushi-flavored rice to make the Japanese favorite inarizushi (sushi).
Yudofu is the stage of firm tofu production before the water is pressed out from the curds. It has a lighter, smoother and more delicate texture compared to firm tofu.
