Melvin making firm tofu.  November 2003.
Organic soybeans are ground and cooked before pressing to produce soymilk and okara (fibre).  Natural nigari (produced from seawater) is used to coagulate the soymilk and the resulting curds are pressed into blocks of tofu.  These are stored in cooling tanks and cut to the required sizes ready for vacuum-packing.
