Tofu Shop scores “Outstanding” on the Organic Soy Scorecard

by on Mar.03, 2011, under Blog, News

The Tofu Shop is very pleased to announce that our score on the Organic Soy Scorecard recently jumped from four to five beans, a jump from the rank of “Excellent” to the highest possible tier of “Outstanding”.

Behind the BeanIn 2009, The Cornucopia Institute, a Wisconsin based advocacy organization, released its study “Behind the Bean: The Heroes and Charlatans of the Natural and Organic Soy Foods Industry.” The report includes an Organic Soy Scorecard that ranks many of the country’s soy foods makers.

The Tofu Shop ranks so high because we use 100% organic ingredients and do all of our production in-house, using organic, non-genetically modified soybeans from North American growers. We were also commended for going the extra mile to use organic, fair-trade cocoa in our chocolate soy milk, for our waste reduction efforts, and for full and open disclosure to Cornucopia’s research inquiries.

The Tofu Shop prides itself on using organic, whole foods ingredients and handcrafting our organic, artisan tofu, soy milks and deli products in small batches with absolutely no possibility of hexane contamination. Recent news stories have uncovered concern about this chemical contamination during soybean processingfor corporate so-called “natural” soy foods producers.

Tofu Shop is going gluten free!

by on Jun.10, 2010, under Blog, News

Due to popular demand, we are transitioning to 100% gluten free. The gluten in some of our products comes from shoyu (a kind of soy sauce), and we’re in the process of switching to wheat-free tamari. Our first product to go gluten free is Smoked Tofu Spread (containers dated 7/1/10 or fresher).

Call or email us for more information.
