Demanding of Tofu was Increasing During Covid 19 Pandemic – Part 1 – Food Variety 21

Wednesday, August 17, 2022

Americans have known tofu since 1840, they called it as “bean curds” on that time, but not all Americans consume this food.

Few years ago, we always buy tofu from ethnic groceries such as:

- Korean shop

- Asian market

- Vietnam stores


Luckily, we may find tofu in the Walmart and other big retails across America almost everyday now.


It is because demand for tofu skyrocket recently, especially during Covid 19 pandemic.

First, USA faced shortage of meat at early months of pandemic, then, many Americans try to find alternatives.

Two types of tofu are available in the market with different prices. Costs per pound are:

- US$ 1.64 for common tofu

- US$ 2.64 for organic tofu


As reported by mainstream medias like Washington Post (2020) and Bloomberg (2020) that demand for tofu not only increasing, but also even shortage in many places include Seattle and Washington DC.


We may wonder why?

  7. When I think of tofu I think of an old K-drama "Smile, You" how the grandfather had survived on tofu and how it was the staple of the pantry for the whole family.

  13. Now I'm wondering why. Tofu also used to be difficult to buy here in Brazil, but now is fairly common.
