All About Tofu

According to this book, Tofu is divided in to 3 main categories:
Traditional Pressed Tofu - made with gypsum (calcium sulfate) or salt brine (concentrated seawater). It can classified into silken tofu and firm tofu.
Boxed Tofu - the soybean using tofu juice for this kind of tofu has lower content of calcium.
Japanese tofu - classified as momen tofu (firmer and rich in fragrance) and kinugoshi tofu (silken tofu is smooth that almost melts in your mouth)
