About Tofu Day

When is Tofu Day? World Tofu Day is July 26. UK National Tofu Day is September 1.

There are two days for vegetarians to celebrate tofu. Aren’t you lucky!? The goal of both World Tofu Day and the UK’s National Tofu Day is to celebrate tofu as a vegetarian alternative to meats and fish. It celebrates healthy tofu and encourages people to stop the cruelty to animals through a more vegetarian diet. Vegetarians and animal rights groups applaud Tofu and promote its consumption. A second goal of these two special holidays is to spread awareness of the benefits of eating a plant-based diet, especially as it impacts animals. SPA Canada an animal rights group and the creator of World Tofu Day, uses this day to strongly fight to end animal cruelty.

Did You Know? The roots of vegetarianism date back to 600 BC in ancient Greece. However, it wasn’t until the 10th Century that the Chinese perfected the process of making Tofu. There are also some references to Tofu being first created in Japan around the same time.

Whether you are celebrating World Tofu Day or National Tofu Day, tofu should definitely be on your menu today. Recipes abound and are just an internet search away.

Special thought just for this day: You can’t have your tofu and eat it, too.

About Tofu

Asian in origin, the word “Tofu” in Mandarin translates to “spoiled beans”. Early Chinese knew that tofu was healthy. They associated the consumption of tofu with a long and healthy life. In addition, it didn’t cost much, serving as an affordable option for those who didn’t have money for meat.

Tofu is a vegetable product made from soybeans. It is rich in vitamins and protein. Tofu is a healthy and organic substitute for meat and fish and is a staple of vegetarians. Soft, bland, and custard-like, Tofu doesn’t have much flavor. Like potatoes or rice, it’s what you put on it, that makes it so enjoyable.

There are several steps to making tofu. The first steps are to make soy milk. A second series of steps produces tofu. You can have extra fun today, by making your own tofu… How to make soy milk and tofu

History and Origin of Tofu Day

World Tofu Day was created by the Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA) Canada in 2014. SPA Canada is an animal rights protection group that seeks to end animal cruelty and encourage humans to practice plant-based diets.

National Tofu Day was created in the United Kingdom. It appears to have started around 2017-2018. We have not yet identified who created it. This special holiday is beginning to gain popularity in the United States.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a “National” day. Our research found no UK parliamentary law or proclamation for this day. We also found no proclamation from the queen or any member of the royal family.

Definition of “National” Days – and why it is so important to distinguish and identify true national days.
