Tofu Kit with Medium Plastic Mold / Press
This kit is identical to our basic tofu kit except that it has a smaller (and less expensive) plastic tofu mold instead of the more traditional cypress wood mold. The plasitic mold is extremely durable and is dishwasher safe. This kit is everything you need to start making your own tofu at home. If you have a soymilk maker you can certainly use it to produce soymilk, however this tofu kit stands on its own, and does not require a soymilk machine. It will walk you through every step of making tofu from soaking the beans to pressing the tofu, and everything inbetween. All you need to provide is some pots and bowls, a wire mesh strainer, blender and lemon juice to use as a coagulant. Making tofu is fun, easy, healthy and delicous. Fresh tofu has an incredible texture and freshness, and is nothing like rubbery, commercial tofu. You can make fresh tofu from organic soybeans at home literally for pennies per pound.

This kit does not include tofu coagulant to help keep your price low. The detailed instructions / recipe call for lemon juice as a coagulant (it works as well as any other option!) because it is cheap, plentiful and available everywhere. The instructions also cover alternative coagulants like vinegar and food grade epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) which can be found at any grocery store. If you are looking for traditional coagulants, we offer those: Chinese gypsum and Japanese Nigari.
