Nasoya wants to school you in tofu, launches online resource

Tofu is a staple for many vegetarians and vegans. The Cleveland Clinic cites tofu as an excellent protein, a good source of B-vitamins and iron and, if fortified, a good source of calcium. The Foundation of Integrated Medicine lists reduced risk of heart disease, lower levels of cholesterol, improved bone density and reduced risk of fractures, decrease in the incidence of breast cancer and lung cancer as some of the many health benefits of eating tofu.

But what do you do with tofu? Nasoya, a leading brand of tofu, has introduced Nasoya Tofu U, a "virtual campus" to educate consumers about the health benefits and, perhaps more importantly, what to do with it. With videos, simple recipes and even games, you can learn how to prepare and cook tofu.

Enroll in Tofu U and gain access to Nasoya coupons, recipes and videos demonstrating how to process and prepare tofu. Students who cook tofu once a week will graduate and receive Tofu U gear.
