I know it means it went on, but why is it said like that?

Q: Which one sounds more natural?

Tofu is made of soybeans.
Tofu is made from soybeans.
A: both are natural. the meaning is just a little bit different in terms of connotation. let's say someone has never heard of or seen tofu ever, if you tell them "made of soybeans" sounds like tofu is very close to what soybeans look like, while "made from soybeans" can imply that soybeans are used to make tofu, and also can imply that there was a process to making into making tofu.

But this is just connotative meaning, so saying either one is fine, and will not confuse people.
