Is tofu better for you than eggs?
Eggs are a high-protein food and some belive it is better for you. However, it is important to keep in mind that not all calories are created equal. As such, when comparing the two food items based on their nutrient density per calorie ratio (i.e., nutrients per 100 calories), tofu wins this comparison handily because it provides 4 times more iron than an equal amount of scrambled eggs while also providing more calcium and vitamin E than an equal amount of scrambled eggs.
