ABSTRACT Bulgur cooked in soymilk of 6% and 9% solid content had significantly (P < 0.05) higher bulk density compared with bulgur cooked in soymilk of 3% solid content and control bulgur cooked in water. As the soymilk solid content increased, pilav bulgur yield increased whereas fine bulgur yield decreased. The SDS-extractability of bulgur proteins increases with the increase in soymilk solid content. Water absorption capacity of fine bulgur samples was affected by soymilk incorporation, and variations in oil absorption capacity were not significant (P > 0.05). Soymilk incorporation improved color and sensory properties of pilav and fine bulgur. The results of this study suggest that soymilk can be successfully applied to bulgur production.
