Researchers at the National University of Singapore have created the world’s first tofu wine using discarded tofu whey; a by-product during the traditional tofu manufacturing process.


The wine named Sachi comes at a lower alcohol level than traditional wine and is said to offer health benefits. The protein and soluble sugars in the whey are also said to reduce oxygen depletion in waterways. Certainly, this isn’t the first beverage to find value from waste as the multinational brewing company Toast brews beer made from wasted bread.
