What are the benefits of tofu?

Tofu is a plant-based source of protein that is cholesterol-free, low in saturated fat and high in polyunsaturated fats. Tofu, which is also known as soybean curds, is highly versatile, and can have many uses in home cooking. Tofu is especially useful if you cannot eat dairy, or avoid animal products like meat or chicken. With proper meal planning, tofu can be part of a healthful diet for most children and adults.
