Matahari Organic Preserved Bean Curd 360g
Certification: ICS OCIA, MOA
Ingredients: organic soy bean, organic rice, sea salt
Highlights: This Taiwanese organic preserved beancurd has a mellow, umami flavour characteristic of traditional fermentation techniques. Traditional fermentation of soy beans converts beneficial minerals into more bioavailable, soluble forms so that the calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium, and zinc from the beans and rice is more easily absorbed in the gut. Vitamin content is also increased, particularly that of thiamin B1, niacin B3 and biotin B7, making this a really valuable food for the nervous system.
During the process the aromatic amino acid Tyrosine is produced which is thought to increase production of the neurotransmitters dopamine, adrenalin and norepinephrine in the body. These may help to improve memory and performance in stressful situations.
Fermented soy contains more protein than unfermented soy making it a better protein substitute for vegans and vegetarians.
Delicious in congee, stews and stir-fries with Zenxin Organic Asian leafy greens.
Refrigerate after opening.
