Organic tofu and tempeh make for a healthy plant-based alternative for good protein in your diet. For vegetarians and vegans, tofu and tempeh can be especially versatile as substitutes for eggs and meat. Tofu can often be used as a substitute for chicken, meat and even scrambled eggs, depending on what type of texture of tofu you use.
Tofu contains calcium, protein, and isoflavones which prevent heart disease, while tempeh contains Vitamin B12, all essential amino acids, calcium, high in essential fatty acids, soluble dietary fibre, isoflavones, folic acid, and low in sodium. Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans, allowing for better digestion than regular tofu. Consuming more of it can also decrease the risk of heart disease and strokes, osteoporosis, build immunity, help with weight loss, digestive disorders and improve bone health.
Made from organic soya beans, organic tofu and tempeh ensure that there are no GMOs being used in the soya beans. Soybeans are the number one crop that has been genetically modified in the world. It is widely used as animal feed, added to bread and packaged foods and is present in several Asian foods, making it highly consumed. However, the effects of genetically modified crops are still unknown, but they may cause the emergence of more superbugs and superweeds and farmers to use more herbicides which are poisonous.
