 Soybean (Large) 

Large-seeded varieties of soybeans are prefered for making tofu. Large size is important in tofu soybeans because bigger beans swell more and make tofu production easier. These varieties often have light colored hilums and their seed coat and meat are a creamy yellow-white color, highly prized in tofu processing.

Large Seeded Soybeans are standardized under the U.S. Standards for Soybeans.
