Tofu (Tào phớ)

      Tofu, also known as "Bean curd", is a specialty of Hanoi which belong to Vietnamese cultures. Familiar with nature beacause the main ingredient is soybean, good for health because it help prevent vitamin deficiency, and, especially idealistic food for overweight people. All this makes the reputation of "To fu".

     Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the resulting curds. Although pre-made soy milk may be used, some tofu producers begin by making their own soy milk, which is produced by soaking, grinding, boiling and straining dried (or, less commonly, fresh) soybeans. Coagulation of the protein and oil suspended in the boiled soy milk is the most important step in the production of Tofu. This process is accomplished with coagulants. Two types of coagulants (salts and acids) are used .
