Hodo Soy produces an array of soymilk, yuba, and tofu in ready-to-eat or ready-to-cook varieties. Hodo means “good bean,” and we can attest to the fact that these products are beyond good. And beyond tasty! They use only whole, certified organic, non-GMO beans, all-US grown from a farmer cooperative called the Midwest Organic Farmers Cooperative.
