Morinaga Silken TOFU
Column Morinaga Silken TOFU, a Shareholder Gift
Tofu is very nutritious, inexpensive and delicious. The only downside is that it does not last long. However, the Company uses its manufacturing technology for aseptic packaging of milk in cardboard packages and its own long-life manufacturing methods applying packaging technology to make Morinaga Silken TOFU, which has a long life of 7.2 months (216 days) even though preservatives and antiseptics are not used.
This tofu is made with carefully selected whole soybeans that have not been genetically modified. The patented manufacturing method for Morinaga Milk eliminates the grassy smell of soybeans and instead offers a rich, smooth taste with a fragrant and delicious tofu that brings out all of the inherent sweetness of soybeans.
