Pregnant women should not eat too much tofu. Eating too much tofu at one time will hinder the body's absorption of iron, and it is also easy to cause protein indigestion, abdominal distension, diarrhea and other discomforts. In addition, tofu is cold, and those with cold stomach and those who are prone to diarrhea and bloating should not eat it. Therefore, pregnant women should avoid eating it when they have symptoms such as diarrhea and bloating.
There are many kinds of tofu, and it is not recommended for pregnant women to eat stinky tofu, fried and frozen tofu. If you can, eat freshly baked tofu, which has the highest nutritional value and is less polluted. Tofu is rich in nutrition. It contains fat protein, high amino acid and unsaturated fatty acid, and also contains carbohydrates, potassium, calcium, magnesium and other essential substances for human body, and its absorption rate can reach more than 95%. These nutrients are consumed more during pregnancy. Eating tofu is beneficial for pregnant women to supplement protein, improve their own immunity, and avoid the decline of immune function due to the consumption of nutrients, resulting in the occurrence of diseases.
Tofu can also help pregnant women supplement vitamins and inorganic salts, help pregnant women replenish energy and eliminate fatigue. Two small pieces of tofu can meet a person's daily calcium requirement. Tofu is an ideal food for pregnant women and an important food for the growth and development of babies. It has a great effect on promoting the development of the bones and brain of the fetus.
It is best to eat tofu with kelp. The saponin in tofu will promote the body to excrete iodine and cause iodine deficiency. And kelp is a very good iodine supplement, so the nutrition will not be lost. Tofu should not be eaten with honey, which will cause diarrhea; tofu should not be eaten with eggs, which will affect protein absorption; tofu should not be eaten with spinach, which will hinder the absorption of calcium.
Cooking Skills：When cooking, the tofu can be cut into larger pieces so that it can easily maintain its original shape. After frying the tofu, the “outside strong and medium dry” will not break easily, and it will taste better in this way. After the tofu is put into the pot, try to use the spatula as little as possible, just shake the pot slightly.
