Types of Tofu
If you're not into the soft, slimy texture of tofu, then you'll want to skip the silken and soft varieties and go straight for firm, extrafirm, or even superfirm. These are more dense, which means more calories and more protein per bite. Check out the nutritional comparison below for a three-ounce serving:
Firm: 70 calories, 8 grams protein
Extrafirm: 80 calories, 9 grams protein
Superfirm: 100 calories, 11 grams protein
