Frequently Asked Questions
Why SOJAMI ?
SOJAMI is the logical continuation of an applied research work in Human Ecology, conducted at the Bordeaux University of Sciences by Jean James GARREAU, Ph.D. in Biology. Overconsumption of animal proteins in rich countries, and a triple approach , dietetic-medical, economic and ecological food systems have inspired the development of a "vegetable cheese" (patented process) based on "soy milk." This innovation has been awarded several times (University of Bordeaux, Price Visa Valoris, INPI, competition for the creation of Innovative Enterprises at Agropole in Agen in 1996). And it was after having been awarded at the Agropole Competition that Jean-James Garreau created the company in spring 1997.
What is the concept of lactofermented tofu and the difference with classic tofu?
Considered a "soy cheese", or "soy curd", traditional tofu is obtained by physico-chemical reaction and gelation of proteins, after adding nigari (salt of magnesium and calcium) to hot.Au Sojami, the high quality of our tofu is due to the lactofermentation it undergoes during its manufacture, a natural process that converts sugars in soy milk into lactic acid.
