In answer to your question. A gram of fat contains slightly over 8
calories, therefore you have 35.2 Fat Calories.  Which means that you have
37.82% of Fat Calories in the serving.  Most nutrionists recommend 30% fat
calorie intake.  This figure is an accumlation of total calories consumed
in a day.  So therefore depending on the rest of the food consumed during
the period you have your answer.

I personally mostly use Mori-Nu Lite Silken Tofu which has the following:

Serving Size:  6 oz (168 g)
Calories-  70    Fat Calories- 10
Protein- 12 g
Fat- 1 g

It works well in stir-fry veggies, I have substitutued it in some dairy
desserts and it worked well for me.
