Natural calcium sulfate (gypsum) and magnesium chloride (nigari) are the most common tofu coagulant used. They have been used for hundreds years in Japan and China.  Nigari is composed mainly of magnesium chloride, but also contains other minerals found in sea water such as sodium chloride (sea salt).  Gypsum is a naturally occurring calcium sulfate.

16 ounces of nigari can coagulate enough soymilk to make about 240 pounds of tofu.  12 ounces of gypsum can make about 90 pounds of tofu. If you buy packaged coagulator, always ask how much tofu it can make.

Please note that both calcium sulfate and magnesium chloride also have other grades for industrial uses. Ours are food grade imported from Japan specifically for making tofu. 

What type to buy, gypsum or nigari? It is really depend on you. Nigari is believed to make better tasting tofu, but gypsum contains calcium. Well, you can try both and see which type you like. 

We only sell in 12-ounce package of gypsum and 16-ounce package of nigari. Shipping & handling is $6.99 for each order, regardless of how much you order. If you order with the SoyaJoy soy milk maker, shipping is free.

Beware that some vendors sell or give away tiny packages of synthetic tofu coagulator (but mislabel as natural coagulator). See picture at left. Each package makes only about 0.4 lb of tofu. 50 packages make only 20 lbs of tofu, less than $1 worth nigari can make. What more important is that these synthetic (manmade) coagulators are not FDA approved and thus should not be used as food additive.
