History of Veggie Tofu Nugget
Veggie Tofu Nugget has 700 years of history. Buddhism was introduced to Japan in the early 6th century. Buddhist teachings prohibited the killing of animals and as a result, Buddhist monks did not eat meat in those days. They supplemented protein with soybeans. In 14th century, shojin ryori, the Buddhist vegetarian cuisine, had developed and consequently they began to eat deep-fried tofu as a substitute for chicken meat. This is the beginning of Veggie Tofu Nugget.
Tofu is naturally gluten-free and is ideal for people allergic to gluten.
All our products are made from carefully selected high-quality non-GMO soybeans.
