Let’s discuss the differences. Tofu is made from soy milk. This gives it a wet, spongy texture. Like a wet sponge that can’t absorb any more liquid, it is very difficult to get tofu to absorb either liquid or any flavor. What you end up with is a food that is bland, and has a mushy, unfamiliar texture to most people. Let’s be honest. If we don’t like something, no matter how good it is for us, we’re not likely to eat it. Right? Well, this is where SO SOYA+ comes to the rescue! SO SOYA+ is made from fat-free soy flour. That’s it. There’s nothing else to declare. It’s dehydrated and has no flavor added. That’s as pure as you can get. As we likened tofu to a wet sponge, let’s liken dehydrated SO SOYA+ to a dry sponge. It can easily absorb whatever liquids surround it – right into the center of the meaty morsels. As it absorbs liquid, it also absorbs whatever flavor you give it. The texture of SO SOYA+ is very familiar and meaty. At demonstrations, we’re often asked what kind of meat the people are sampling. How’s that for convincing? In other words, what you end up with when using SO SOYA+ is a food that has whatever flavor you give it, in a familiar, meaty texture. This doesn’t take any getting used to at all!
