Tofu Alternative Ditches Soy In Favor Of Pumpkin Seeds

by | August 1, 2019

Pumfu, an alternative tofu product made with pumpkin seeds instead of soy, is now hitting retailers in the US.

Made from pumpkin seeds, it contains 17g of protein, 5g of fibre, and 28g of fat per serving. Similarly versatile to tofu, Pomfu can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, while effectively eliminating the concerns some have around soy.
