i froze some tofu cause it was getting close to expiry date and i knew i wouldn't use it in time. it's been a month or two i think and just wondering if it's still ok to use. one package is still sealed so it's probably ok right? the other is a half package that i cubed and put into a container for easy portioning, but since it was opened is it still ok?

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

I'd say it's fine (both the opened and the unopened, unless the opened has bad freezerburn). I've frozen tofu for a few months and not noticed a difference from tofu frozen for a few days.

That just reminded me, I need to check my tofu in the fridge and see what the expiry date is. I'm new to tofu and haven't used it yet. Shame on me!

According to this webpage all about freezing tofu it should last 3 months.



Here's the link:

ah cool thanks! i've never frozen it before, i rarely buy the stuff but my mom made tofurkey from scratch at christmas and bought too much tofu so she sent it home with me (she's omni so she'd never use it if i'm not there)

i used some in my rice cooker, which turned out pretty well, so i figured if i can keep some portioned out in the freezer i might be more likely to use it



is there an easy way to tell if tofu is gone bad, frozen or not?

I usually hear it's the smell that helps you tell if it's gone bad..

Bad bad smell when it's off, also I bought some last week that when I opened up the cardboard box and got to the plastic wrap, I could see the tofu was pink. I think the plastic had a small hole in it as the carton was damp. Pink is poison, if a soya yoghurt I once lost is anything to go by.
