Are you having Japanese Nigari tofu?

DO YOU KNOW NIGARI?

Nigari is the coagulating agent for tofu making. Nigari is foamed as a by-product from the extraction of sea salt from sea water.

Traditional Japanese tofu is made with Nigari however less and less Nigari tofu is made in Japan because of the high cost. it is VERY HARD to find Nigari tofu here in Sydney as you can guess. Most tofu in Australia (and getting more and more in Japan) is made in Chinese style using Calcium sulfate (gypsum), the cheapest coagulating agent.
