The possibility of substituting raw materials for soy sauce by corn gluten was studied by measuring the amylase and proteolytic activities of koji. Also optimum conditions of koji making were determined. It was found that substitution of up to 30% of the defatted bean content (or 15% of the total bean and wheat content) with corn gluten yielded a good quality of soy sauce. Use of more than 15% corn gluten (based on total bean and wheat content) yielded a soy sauce of poor taste and low nitrogen content even though corn gluten has a high nitrogen content. This drop in nitrogen was attributed to the low enzyme activity in koji containing more than 15% corn gluten and the difference in availability of nitrogen in bean compared to corn gluten.
