Nasoya Introduces TOFU PLUS

"AYER, Mass., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- TOFU PLUS, the nation's first and only tofu "beefed up" with nutrients needed by people looking to lower or eliminate meat from their diet without sacrificing nutrition, is being introduced by Nasoya, America's leading tofu company (, on March 12-14 at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA.

TOFU PLUS is fortified to provide 20 percent of the daily nutritional requirements of the vital nutrients that can be harder to get when meat is less prevalent in the diet. These include B-2, B-6, B-12, Zinc, D-2 and Calcium. TOFU PLUS is also low in saturated fat, free from sodium and cholesterol, is a good source of Iron, and contains naturally occurring phosphorous. Made from premium quality, organic soy beans, TOFU PLUS is produced in Nasoya's organic-certified plant outside of Boston.
"We're all taking steps to be healthier, and eating less meat is a choice many are making. But many consumers worry that veggie-based foods like tofu may not provide all the nutrients they get in meat," said Susan Rolnick, Nasoya Marketing Director. "Nasoya designed TOFU PLUS to make this transition easier for consumers. We fortified TOFU PLUS with B vitamins, Vitamin D, Calcium and Zinc, some of the essential nutrients found in meat, but not in traditional tofu."
