Taho comes from Soy Beans, thus this is my take to this week's theme.
according to a TV show - long time ago thus i forgot where and when - products like taho, tofu and tokwa comes from a single process but different stages of maturity that makes it different in textures. my suking mamang taho confirms it.
They grind soy beans and put in hot water to extract its milk (soy milk). they add water, soy milk and calcium (to make it firm). then they put the taho in pails for vending. the middle part is the tofu, its firmer than taho but softer than tokwa. the bottom part is the tokwa, thats where the term "latak ng taho ang tokwa" came from. Tofu has two common varieties : frim; and silken.
Im craving for towa't baboy everytime i finish a glass of Taho :D
Have a great day ka-Lasang-Pinoy :D
