The viscoelastic behavior of traditional Korean noodles was examined by using a tensile tester built in the laboratory. The creep test of cooked noodle strand showed that a linear viscoelastic response could be expected for a short time of creep, i.e. 120 sec for wheat flour noodle and 60 sec for wheat-sweet potato starch noodle, with the stress range between $4{\times}10^4\;and\;14{\times}10^4\;dyn\;cm^{-2}$. The elastic modulus was estimated to be $7.0{\times}10^5\;dyn\;cm^{-2}$ for wheat flour noodle and $3.9{\times}10^5\;dyn\;cm^{-2}$ for wheat-sweet potato starch noodle. A peculiar increase in viscosity with increasing stress, i.e. stress-hardening, was observed in the noodles studied.
