Inspiring adventures in good food.

Hodo is comprised of a team of deliciousness-obsessed makers in Oakland, California who hand craft plant-based foods for people who love to eat well.  Most well-known for it's organic, non-GMO product range of tofu and yuba found at retailers and restaurants throughout the US, Canada & Hong Kong.  We provide R&D and white label service for the food industry, notably supplying plant-based proteins for small-scale to large-scale food service clients such as Superiority Burger, sweetgreen, Chipotle, Whole Foods Market, and Sunbasket.

At this year's National Restaurant Association show, we will also be partnering with Renewal Mill, telling the story of the full cycle of the soybean and our mutual interest and commitment to a sustainable food system.

Renewal Mill is a next-generation ingredients company that upcycles the byproducts of food manufacturing into premium ingredients and products. Our initial ingredient is okara flour, a high fiber, high protein gluten-free flour made from the soymilk pulp generated during soymilk production. 

Okara is an extremely versatile superfood flour at a mass market price that adds nutrition and flavor to a wide range of products, including cookies and crackers, vegan meats, extruded puff snacks, gluten-free baking blends, and pancake mixes. From a functional perspective, okara is light in color and neutral in taste, it enhances moisture retention, and it can serve as a thickener. And with a carbon footprint 40% less than traditional wheat flour, okara flour is an environmentally-friendly choice.

  • Okara Flour
    Okara flour is a high fiber, high protein, gluten free flour upcycled from the soybean pulp leftover from soymilk production. Light in color and neutral in flavor, okara is a sustainable way to add nutrition and taste to products and dishes....

  • Okara is a delicious superfood made from the soybean pulp created during soymilk production. A traditional East Asian ingredient, okara has been used for centuries in its wet form to make savory dishes like the popular Japanese okonomiyaki. Renewal Mill uses okara to craft a high protein, high fiber gluten free flour.

    With 6x the fiber and 1/15th the carbs of traditional white flour, okara flour blends great taste and powerful nutrition to create a truly versatile ingredient. Added to any flour-based product, okara packs in fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals while allowing the product to retain its same taste, texture, and appearance. While other alternative gluten free flours are designed for premium, high-end consumers, okara is the first superfood flour with price, taste, and use parity to all-purpose flour, enabling use in both sweet and savory everyday foods. Research even shows that eating okara keeps your heart healthy, your waist trim, and your muscles strong (helps with active recovery). So, choosing okara is better for you and better for the planet.
