I know tofu has a lot of protein, but I've also heard that is has a lot of fat too. How much fat is in it?

Four ounces of firm tofu has 79 calories, 9.25 grams of protein (about 37 calories), 1.9 grams of carbohydrates (about 8 calories) and 4.71 grams of fat (about 37 calories). Soft tofu has about 69 calories and is very slightly lower in protein.

So while tofu not a low-fat food -- that would require than less than 1/3 of the calories come from fat--almost all the fat in tofu is unsaturated good' fat. It is also high in minerals including selenium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
