Soybean foods that people are not aware of


The soy products are widely consumed in our daily life and they are not merely meals, some of the desserts are popular here. Some people can not tolerate the milk, so they choose soya milk as their supplements. One of the most common soy foods is tofu, which is also manufactured in other Asian countries such as Japan, Korea and so on. In Japan, tofu is made by different companies with various kinds of materials and the most famous one is Kyoto. We may not have lots of tofu makers, but we eat soybean foods in various forms. Tofu skins and dried bean curds are popular soy foods in Taiwan too, though some people may consume these as snacks, they are easily purchased with cheaper prices.
