Discover how delicious eSutras Organic Tofu is!

Adding soy to your diet is easy. You can cook tofu in all types of recipes : use it as a meat substitute in stir-fry, make spreads or dips with it to serve on veggies, bread & crackers or purée it in a delicious chocolate mousse. Use soy milk as you would regular cow's or goat's milk, for soups and cream sauces or ice creams and cereal.

Sugar from both sources is produced in nature as all green plants produce sugar: as a means of storing the sun's energy. The "simple" sugars, or monosaccharides (such as glucose), store energy which biological cells use and consume.

Sucrose is a larger sugar molecule that breaks down into glucose and fructose in the intestine during metabolism. Glucose is the vital fuel that the brain cells use. It is also fuels energy in the body. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicinal paradigm, holds organic cane sugar - the kind with little refinement - in the highest regard. Sugar is sweet, nourishing, develops semen, is beneficial for the eyes and gives your body strength. It eliminates excessive humors of wind and bile in the body and keeps the toxicity of cells in check. Why are we telling you this? Because we…
