The English word "tofu" comes from the Japanese tōfu (豆腐),
which itself derives from the Chinese dòufu (豆腐 or 荳腐) from
"bean" (豆) plus "curdled" or "fermented"
The American-English term "bean curd(s)" for tofu has been used since at least 1840. This does not apply to the United Kingdom, Australia or New Zealand; only the United States.
