It is known that tofu quality tends to vary among soybeans even of the same variety. Cultivation environments can affect the contents of the soybeans. Twenty-seven soybean varieties were grown in a drained paddy field and an upland field, and then their protein and phytate contents were determined using the Fourier transfer infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) method. The phytate contents of 12 varieties were higher in the drained paddy field than in the upland field. On the other hand, the… 

The localization of phytate in tofu curd formation and effects of phytate on tofu texture.

It is concluded that the phytate content is one important factor that contributes to tofu texture and was influenced by Optimal coagulant concentration (OCC) for making tofu.

Growth characteristics, phytate contents, and coagulation properties of soymilk from a low-phytate Japanese soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) line

The phytic acid (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate or InsP6) content of seed crops is important to their nutritional quality. Since it represents 75 ± 10% of the total seed phosphorus (P), phytic acid is

Effects of phytase-assisted processing method on physicochemical and functional properties of soy protein isolate.

Compared with traditional processing method, the phytase-assisted processing method could produce SPI with lower phytate and higher protein contents, which had better in vitro digestibility and could be used to prepare gels with higher hardness by partially losing some other functional properties.

Effect of components extracted from okara on the physicochemical properties of soymilk and tofu texture.

Relative particulate protein content and viscosity were higher and pH was lower in the soymilk prepared by the latter method, in which liberated lipid bodies were decreased and more lipids were precipitated with protein after centrifugation, suggesting a change in the interaction between proteins and lipids.

Changes of Soybean Protein during Tofu Processing

This review summarizes the series of changes in the composition and structure of soy protein that occur during the processing of tofu (specifically, during the pressing, preservation, and packaging steps) and the effects of soybean varieties, storage conditions, soybean milk pretreatment, and coagulant types on the structure of Soybean protein and the quality of tofu.

Research progress in tofu processing: From raw materials to processing conditions

Research investigating the influence of tofu processing conditions on the quality and isoflavone profiles of tofu are the subject of this review.

Minerals, Oxalate and Phytate Contents of Recommended Soybean Cultivars in Korea

This study was conducted to select the soybean cultivar to minimize the formation of calcium oxalate, and investigate the ingredients for total oxalate (Ox), phytate (InsP6) and minerals such as

Analysis of Protein Function and Comparison of Protein Expression of Different Environment in Soybean using Proteomics Techniques

It could be suggested that protein expression is not severely different by various environment, but different environment affects degree of protein expression.



Yield and Textural Properties of Tofu as Affected by the Changes of Phytate Content During Soybean Storage

ABSTRACT: Soybeans stored under 4 conditions were analyzed for the degradation of phytate and its effects on tofu qualities. Phytate in soybeans was hydrolyzed significantly under the adverse

Effect of Soybean Varieties on the Yield and Quality of Tofu

Cereal Chern. 60(3):245-248 Tofu was made on a laboratory scale from five U.S. and five Japanese soybean varieties grown under the same environmental conditions. With one exception, all the tofu

Seed Protein Content and Consistency of Tofu Prepared with Different Magnesium Chloride Concentrations in Six Japanese Soybean Varieties

Concentration of a coagulant for the maximum breaking stress as well as seed protein content could become criteria for quality evaluation of soybeans for tofu processing.

Rapid Measurement of Phytate in Raw Soymilk by Mid-infrared Spectroscopy

A rapid measurement of phytate from a water extract of soybean (raw soymilk) in an early stage of tofu processing was investigated using mid-infrared spectroscopy (IR) with an ATR accessory and gives reproducible values, which can be used for the measurement ofphytate content in various soybeans for tofu making.

Yield and quality of tofu as affected by soybean and soymilk characteristics: glucono-delta-lactone coagulant

Nine light hilum soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr] cultivars were used to study characteristics that affect yield and quality of tofu (soybean curd) coagulated with glucono-delta-lactone (GDL). Pressed

Effect of soy milk characteristics and cooking conditions on coagulant requirements for making filled tofu.

The results showed that the CPCC was significantly positively correlated with phytate content (grams per gram of protein), pH, and 7S protein content but negatively correlated with protein content, 11Sprotein content,11S/7S ratio, titratable acidity, and original calcium content.

Yield and Quality of Tofu as Affected by Soybean and Soymilk Characteristics. Calcium Sulfate Coagulant

Nine light hilum soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) varieties were used to study the characteristics of soybeans and soymilk that affect the yield and quality of tofu coagulated with calcium sulfate.
