OAKLAND, CA (March 8, 2016) – Hodo Soy, the popular maker of delicious, organic tofu and yuba products, will debut its newest product, Hodo Sichuan Mapo Tofu at Expo West this week. Hailed as one of the most popular Chinese dishes, it is found on menus in Chinese restaurants around the world. Now Hodo reinterprets this classic regional dish with organic, gluten-free ingredients while preserving the authenticity of its flavor.

Hodo Sichuan Mapo Tofu is a ready-to-eat spicy tofu entrée that is a stir fry of our signature firm tofu, miso, shiitake mushrooms and a fiery mixture of chilies and Sichuan peppercorns−sought after for its heady, floral fragrance and tongue-tingling bite. As with all Hodo Soy products, Hodo Sichuan Mapo Tofu is certified organic, vegan and has minimal processing and zero additives to preserve flavor and nutrients and continues the Hodo Soy tradition of superior taste, nutrition and convenience.

“At Hodo Soy, flavor and taste drive our company mission. As consumers lean to ready-to-eat items, we wanted to offer a product that is delicious, yet easy and wholesome,” said Minh Tsai, CEO and founder of Hodo Soy. Hodo Sichuan Mapo Tofu will be available at grocery stores nationwide this spring.

Expo West attendees can sample Hodo Sichuan Mapo Tofu and other Hodo Soy products including our bestselling Thai Curry Tofu Nuggets and Sesame Yuba Noodles at Expo West Booth #5796 Hall E this week.

Since its inception in 2004, Hodo Soy has popularized tofu beyond traditional tofu-eating cultures and has gained a cult-like following among consumers with its rich, creamy, and full-flavored tofu and crowd pleasing ready-to-eat products. As consumer demand for plant-based, organic, non-GMO and gluten-free foods grows, Hodo Soy is the industry standard bearer for premium tofu. Hodo Soy is popular with foodservice institutions including Chipotle Mexican Grill and Bon Appetit Management Company, restaurant chefs and is available in fine grocery stores nationwide.

An Oakland Entrepreneur Is Reinventing Tofu for the Masses

February 29th, 2016
Minh Tsai is on a mission to make you think differently about tofu.
“[Tofu nuggets are] an innovative gateway,” he says of the wrinkly blobs of fried and braised tofu that are made one story below where he sits. “We want to have as many gateways as possible to get people to think about tofu as an ingredient.”
From the beginning, Tsai knew that flavor and provenance would have to be his product’s hallmarks—he wanted to make tofu good enough to eat on its own.
Hodo is uniquely poised to become synonymous with tofu quality ….

The Trendiest Tofu

December 9th, 2015

“[Tsai] is committed to cultivating and crafting his foodstuffs naturally in the service of yielding a better-tasting product….Hodo’s quality-first credo is what draws chefs like Headley [Brooks Headley of Superiority Burger] to its products…. In the kitchen, Hodo goods are rolled into the signature brown rice-tofu-cabbage wrap, add substance to the sloppy joes and get sandwiched into the cheesesteak-inspired Yuba Philadelphia special. “We use it exclusively,” he says….“It’s also delicious right out of the package, even without salt. That’s crazy. That’s insane actually. Any additional seasoning you do just makes it better.”
