Tofu or bean curd is a food of Chinese origin, made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into blocks. Tofu has very little flavor or smell on its own, so it can be used either in savory or sweet dishes, and is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish. Tofu is low in calories, contains beneficial amounts of iron and has no saturated fat or cholesterol.
