A natural coagulent for making tofu, these Japanese nigari flakes make a firm, tender tofu. This 1lb bag will make many batches of tofu.
Refined Nigari Flakes are used to coagulate soymilk for making tofu. Consisting of magnesium chloride with some magnesium sulfate and other trace elements, it is the dried liquid remaining after common table salt has been removed from sea water. Nigari tends to make a firmer and more tender tofu than Terra Alba (aka Gypsum).
- Nigari can be used alone or in combination with Terra Alba if additional calcium is desired.
- Each Package Contains: 1 lb. (454 g.) Nigari Flakes
- One pound of Nigari Flakes is sufficient to make approximately 200 lb. of tofu
- Food-grade Magnesium Chloride (a natural Japanese sea salt derivative)
What Our Customers Are Saying
Thank you for selling it on your website
very good service
As others have suggested, grinding the flakes really helps in getting the accurate amount for making tofu.
Quality product. The only issue I have is that it seems like I am getting way more whey than tofu when I use 1 tsp with 2 quarts of soy milk. Wondering if using more nigari will help.
Magnesium chloride. Yes! Excellent source of magnesium. Thank you.
