Silken Tofu

  • May 18, 2022

I had the opportunity to have a slightly unusual trial product.
Morinaga Milk’s “Silken Tofu” is a tofu that can be stored at room temperature for a long period of 7.2 months (216 days).
I didn’t know that Morinaga Milk manufactures tofu, but according to the website, it has a long history. In 1977, they succeeded in developing tofu that can be stored for a long time without using preservatives, and released as a delivery limited product in 1989. And it seems that they were renewed and released in 2019 as tofu that can be stored at “normal temperature”.

Its shape makes it easy to store, making it ideal for rolling stock. In the event of a disaster, you can replenish the protein you want to ingest with particular awareness.

I thought whether they obtained patents for the technology making it last longer at room temperature, but there was no display on the homepage.
When I searched J-PlatPat with the keywords “Morinaga Milk” and “Tofu”, 26 patents were hit. Patent applications such as the title of the invention “Filled soybean curd-like food and method for producing the same” may be related techniques.

Well, it’s the essential taste, but I don’t know because I haven’t eaten it yet. Since it can be stored for a long time at room temperature, I would like to keep it in stock and eat it when the expiration date is approaching.
In 2020, they introduced the special “grinding and squeezing method” and renewed it more deliciously! ,and you can expect it. If it tastes good, it will be a candidate for stockpile♪ (Cacao)
