hi I was told by a tofu producer, that if it is not an air-tight package or once opened. It's better to change the water everyday to keep it away from going slimy. So I guess that's probably one of the reasons it went wrong....

I always try to use up tofu before its best by date. Once I open it, I use it within two days or so, and I change the water to keep it fresh. You'll definitely know when tofu is off; it has a horrid smell when it's gone bad.

TOfu before expiration
 
So do you guys think it is normal for tofu to have some smell, when it is not after expiration?

I had 2 tofus with the same expiration (well, only week from now, but still), and the first was with no smell, the second one smelled a little bad (not like a fish, bananas.. dont know how to tell it). Taste was normal.

I ate only a little. Whart do you think? The texture is normal as wll:)

Chinese usually eat "Stinky Tofu" which is fermented on purpose. According to the manufacturer of this product, it is OK if tofu produces white hair (though you may not like the smell, then throw it away), but you must discard it if the hair is in other colors, such as green, red or yellow.

I just fixed expired tofu, it has been up in the top of the fridge, I made scrambled tofu with it added mushrooms and onions and it tastes just fine, and no nasty odor when cooking, it's plant based, not animal based, so even though there is an expiration date on it, like I've been reading use your judgement on color and smell.

I'm curious now-- on top of your fridge means it's aseptic packed- but I have never seen anything other than silken tofu in those, and how could you scramble silken???

I once ate tofu after the expiration date and it had gone soft and sour. I took a few bites and had to throw it away.

It's not worth the risk of gastrointestinal invaders. Plant- based or no, food can grow harmful bacteria. Throw it out and have a can of beans instead.

Ever smell sour soymilk? Gag

I've gotten spoilt tofu that was well within the dates. Trader Joe had a rash of bad ones- not so bad that they puffed up, but you could see the water was discolored, a bit foamy, and the texture was like 'crumbly'-not right. I also tasted a bit, and yes, very soury

I opened a pouch of Westsoy Tofu recently that had foul-smelling yellow slime coating the tofu. And it was not even expired. Needless to say, I did not eat it.
