❁ Tofu is usually in a refrigerated case. It may be packed in water or vacuum packed without water. There are also shelf-stable packages that do not need refrigeration until opened.
❁ Check the ‘Best by’ date on the package. It usually allows a month or more after purchase as long as the package is unopened.
❁ Match the type of tofu to the recipe. Soft or silken tofu has a creamy texture and blends easily. Medium will crumble easily. Firm, extra-firm or super-firm tofu will hold its shape.
