The world's largest piece of salt beancurd appeared at the Hunan International Agriculture Fair in Changsha, capital city of central China's Huanan province, on November 20, 2007.
The world's largest piece of salt beancurd appeared at the Hunan International Agriculture Fair in Changsha, central China's Huanan province on Tuesday.
About 2.6 meters long, 1.3 meters wide and 0.2 meters thick, the salt beancurd used 500 kilograms of quality soybean, which in the end weighs over 620 kilograms and could feed some 1,000 people.
Beancurd is usually made from soybeans and food gypsum, an edible additive. But food gypsum is nowadays often replaced by salt in making beancurd. The new substitute can make the beancurd fresher and softer. Due to the new additive, the product is now also called salt beancurd.
Manager of the beancurd company, Xiao Baohua, said their salt beancurd on display is the largest such piece in the world.
