Description

Details

Refined Nigari Flakes is a natural solidifying agent for making tofu.  Consisting of magnesium chloride with some magnesium sulfate and other trace elements, it is the dried liquid remaining after common table salt has been removed from sea water.  Nigari tends to make a firmer and more tender tofu than Terra Alba (aka Gypsum).

  • Nigari can be used alone or in combination with Terra Alba if additional calcium is desired.

  • One pound of Nigari Flakes is sufficient to make approximately 200 lb. of tofu

 

Ingredients

  • Food-grade Magnesium Chloride (a natural Japanese sea salt derivative)

    Got it for Tofu making. Quality and price is pretty good.
    The label doesn't tell how much magnesium is contained per g so have to guess how to use. Otherwise quite satisfied.

    Note from CFH: Our recipe calls for 1 tsp. of Nigari Flakes to 2 quarts soy milk. http://www.culturesforhealth.com/how-to-make-tofu

  6. The best option for tofu

    I had made tofu in the past with other coagulants. They were "eh" quality compared to nigari flakes. We ate the tofu as a dessert it was delicious all by itself.

    To get an accurate measurement I put the flakes in a coffee grinder and ground them to a powder. This took a second and the powder melted quickly in the water.

    Bought for tofu making. Much purer than the nigari that i previously used. Only problem was that this material arrives as large thick flakes of nigari, making it difficult to measure accurately. I normally use 4 tsp in a double batch of tofu, but it did not coagulate at this dosage. it required 6 tsp. i believe that was because the flakes leave lots of empty space in the measuring spoon. now that i know, i don't think that it will ever be a problem again. the price is reasonable, but the shipping seems high for just one pound, hence my rating on price and value.
