Difference between silken tofu and firm tofu

At first sight it looks the same but there are differences in taste and nutrients.

Difference in manufacturing process

Do you make silk using silk?! Imagine that.
Actually, in making tofu there is a process to set it in a mold box.
Firm tofu puts cloth on a container, puts coagulum as a raw material of tofu from above, pressurizes from above with pressure and presses moisture to harden it.
For that reason it is characterized by its strong taste and difficult to crumble.
In the case of silken tofu, do not lay cloth when putting it in a mold box, soft and smooth tofu is finished because of pressure is not pressed. . Therefore, it is often used as cold tofu.

Difference in nutritional aspects

Since firm tofu reduces moisture by applying pressure and compressed nutrition so that more protein, calcium and iron than silken tofu.
On the other hand, silken tofu contains more vitamin B1, B2, potassium than firm tofu which flows along with moisture.
