Sesame defatted flour was prepared from dehulled seeds and the proteins extracted by isoelectric precipitation from an alkaline suspension of the flour. Temperature and pH effects on viscosity of a protein dispersion were measured using a Brookfield viscometer. Emulsifying capacity and emulsion stability were measured in mayonnaise and meat-type emulsions, respectively. Sesame flour was texturized by a simple method to produce a ground meat-like product with a hydration capacity of 380–440%. Sensory evaluation of meat loaves with 0–40% meat replaced by hydrated textured defatted sesame flour indicated no significant difference between samples. Viscosity of sesame protein dispersions at 90°C increased with increasing pH. The proteins did not form a self-supporting gel. Their emulsifying capacity proved to be relatively high when compared with traditional proteins.
