Made in Illinois: Terrific Tofu
Tofu has long been a favorite of vegans and vegetarians, providing a protein-rich alternative to meat. With 20 grams of protein per cup, tofu also contains essential amino acids and other beneficial minerals.
The California-based company Hodo Foods sells tofu products in thousands of retail locations. But none of Hodo Foods’ success would be possible without the 3,000 bushels of soybeans that they process weekly – soybeans that come from Illinois fields.
Hodo Foods offers ready-to-cook tofu dishes as well as fully prepared meals that are ready to heat and eat, according to founder Minh Tsai, a Vietnam native. Visit hodofoods.com to find a retailer that carries Hodo Foods’ tofu near you.
