Question about tofu fa (the dessert)

Alice Patis | Aug 9, 2006 11:48 PM

A couple weeks ago my eyes were bigger than my stomach and I bought a quart size container of tofu from a tofu/banh mi takeout place. I think what I bought was "tofu fa" (or "taho" as it's called in the Philippines). I was given ginger sugar syrup in a separate tub. I put both in the fridge at work and forgot all about it until today. It still smells ok (like fresh soybean milk, yum). Is it still ok to eat?

I don't want to eat all that sugar so I was thinking of tossing the ginger syrup, and using the tofu in cooking. Is what I bought pure tofu, or does it have other "stuff" like cornstarch, potato starch etc? Thing is, I don't know if what I bought was pure fresh tofu or tofu fa.
