    I loved White Wave tofu not imported tofu made in China that stinks when you open the package and has the consistency of plastic. I ate a tub a day of White Wave (bought out years ago by Dean Food Products)- firm organic. Well guess what?

    Dean stopped making White Wave tofu in order to sell their soybeans for ethanol at much higher prices. They continue making Silk “milks” and some over processed tofu products. They will probably phase these out also. This is an insult to their consumers who now have to try to eat Wes Soy which the giant supermarkets are using as a substitute. Wes Soy is a disgusting tofu. Or we must use imported disgusting tofu which smells and really is plastic.

    Think of all the people who will try this once and never eat tofu again. Dean not only exploits and tortures millions of cows but in light of all their ads about health and quality has now decided to thumb their nose at humans who depended on them in places where nothing else fresh and pure is available.

    So don’t buy their hype about their concern for our health. Boycott Dean Products.

    Luckily I found Bountiful Bean tofu from Simple Soyman distributes in my area. And Mori Nu which is vacuum packed is pretty good. But both are much more expensive. AND companies like Dean will take over small companies like White Wave and Simple Soyman just to get their hands on the soybeans they use. FOR PROFIT – the quick influx of cash before America figures out that it can use non food leafy products for fuel.

    We must begin to organize to protect our main source of protein.

    I think the first step is to boycott all Dean Products – to get our friends who buy their milk or butter to switch brands – write them a letter and tell them why.

    We need legislation to subsidize farmers who raise soybeans for food rather than fuel.

    And we must demand that leaf and woods burned in California for no use at all – burning animals in the process, and other places instead be brush cleared for fuel instead.

    I might have mixed up ethanol with bio fuel but one of them took my tofu away listen this is what my friend wrote when I told him about it.

    “Pressure on dean foods and calling people’s attention to the corporate trail behind veg food is definitely a good thing. White Wave, though, was hardly a benign little company that became a pawn subsidiary of an evil giant. White Wave, which includes Horizon, owns a major dairy factory farm and contracts out with at least 6 or 7 other more minor ones in order to produce its dairy products. Peter Singer and Jim Mason chronicle some of this in their latest book i believe. So the story’s message is the same but more complex. Green and veg food must move away from the commodity impulse that industrializes agriculture period.
