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.

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 (Posted on February 10, 2014)
