Delicious soy bean based food - Yuba !

Welcome to what I believe to be the first web-site on Yuba in English. Hand-made by monks at Solinan Temple in Kyoto, this soybean based healthfood has long been acknowledged as one of the most nutritious foods of the orient. It is believed that the First Chinese Emperor Qui Shihaung (B.C. 259 to 210) was responsible for the growth in popularity of Yuba. As he grew older he implored his medical advisors to discover an elixir which would invigorate him and prolong his life. After many failed attempts (and executions no doubt for the hapless advisers) yuba became the chosen health-food of the emperor. In contemporary Japan interest has been reawakened in this food by a series of documentaries shown on NHK (The number one TV channel in Japan). As with the west, growing mistrust of food manufacturing processes has prompted people to seek out handmade organic food which has not been subjected to modern food processing methods.
