Tofu has long been a traditional food of Asian cultured and a mystery to many. Believed by many to be a “fountain of youth” food, it has served as a staple for many countries in the Far East for thousands of years. For the Chinese, tofu has not only been a staple, it has also been a competition among chefs and makers to produce some of the most varied and delicious tofu creations.
Come unravel the mysteries with the Cheng family as they open the doors to their new Sun Xien Soy Products factory. The tour will show machinery used to make tofu, the process itself and different types of tofu. There will be a comparison to other brands made in Chicago.
