Its calcium content ranks first, 30 times that of soy milk! Children eat more in winter and swish long in spring!

Everyone knows that the calcium content of soy products is very high, so many families insist on making soy milk for their children for breakfast every day. Can this play a role in supplementing calcium?

There are many types of soy products. When it comes to soy products, many people may only be familiar with those: tofu, soy milk, dried tofu, etc. The calcium supplementation effect of soy products is always talked about by people. But scientific research shows that not all soy products have calcium supplement function!
Yes, not all soy products can supplement calcium, such as soy milk and lactone tofu, really do not supplement calcium.

The calcium content of soybean itself is not high, 100 grams of dry soybeans only have 191 mg of calcium. After adding water to make soy milk, the calcium content is even more diluted to 10 mg/100 g, which is only one-tenth of milk. So soy milk cannot replace milk to supplement calcium.

However, after processing soybeans into tofu, it is necessary to add 7-8 times the amount of water, and the calcium content of 100 grams of tofu can reach 164 mg. This is because a considerable part of the calcium in tofu is added during processing. The brine or gypsum used to make tofu is called a coagulant, and it contains many calcium ions.

Tofu, tofu shreds, dried tofu and other soy products are processed with calcium-containing coagulants, which are a good source of calcium. Tofu is a reprocessed product of tofu. During the production process, salt, fennel, pepper and other seasonings are added, which is fragrant and fresh. tasty. It is worth mentioning that its calcium content ranks first in soy products, which is more than 30 times that of soy milk!
So if you want to replenish calcium by eating soy products, I recommend you to choose: brine tofu (also called northern tofu), gypsum tofu.

The brine tofu in the supermarket costs 5 yuan a piece, which is a bit more expensive than ordinary tofu, but it is indeed a very good calcium supplement. Its calcium content ranks first, 30 times that of soy milk! Children eat more in winter and swish long in spring! And the taste is soft and glutinous, especially delicious. It is made into cold dishes in summer, soft and glutinous and appetizing. In winter, we make warm dishes that are also very tasty and easy! Next time you visit the supermarket, you may wish to look carefully!
