Is Tofu Permissible (Halal) To Eat?


Answered by Shaykh Yusuf Weltch


Is tofu permissible (halal) to eat?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

Tofu is permissible to eat. There is nothing in tofu that would make it impermissible. Tofu is made from condensed soy milk using a process similar to cheesemaking. 

Hope this helps

Allah knows best
