FarmSoy Company has been making soymilk and tofu since the early 1970's. Our products have been certified organic since 1992. We produce only certified organic products and are currently certified by QCS, Quality Certification Services, of Gainesville, Florida. By definition, if a product is certified organic, it also means that no Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are present in the product and that the products have not been irradiated.
In a 2009 impartial report compiled by the non-profit Cornucopia Institute, “Beyond the Bean: The Heroes and Charlatans of the Natural and Organic Soy Foods Industry,” FarmSoy was awarded the highest “5 Bean Rating” for our commitment to organics and locally grown soybeans.
Many of our well traveled and tofu savvy customers have told us that we make the best tofu and soy yogurt that they've ever eaten. We attribute this to the human factor and the quality ingredients we use.
Our tofu does not contain processing aids, which are not required to be listed on a label's list of ingredients. Regional farmers grow our organic soybeans on their certified organic farms. We use our community's well water, which is very pure and tested frequently. The only other ingredient is calcium sulfate, a natural substance mined from the earth, which we use to coagulate the soymilk in order to form tofu. The National Organic Standards Board has approved calcium sulfate for use in organic products. These ingredients are prepared by fellow tofu lovers to create the very best tofu for your good health and eating pleasure.
FarmSoy tofu is firm, yet creamy with no aftertaste. Each block of firm and extra firm style of tofu is a full 16 ounces, has a high protein and low fat content, and is a good source of calcium and magnesium.
When comparing brands of tofu, be aware that the higher the protein content, the firmer the tofu. You can see what a good value FarmSoy tofu is by comparing our protein content with the equivalent styles of much of the competition. A little variation is present since human beings make the tofu, not just machines!
While FarmSoy is mainly known for its tofu, Farm Community members are equally enthusiastic about the no frills, unsweetened, dairy-free soy yogurt they’ve enjoyed for years. It is now called “Soygurt,” and is available in limited TN markets:
Nashville – Whole Foods Market
Summertown – The Farm Store
