This study was undertaken to investigate for the possible use of enzymes with ${\alpha}-galactosidase$ and protease activities to remove flatulence factors as well as to improve the yield and protein digestibility in soymilk preparation. The volume and protein yield were not increased significantly by enzyme treatment. The solids yield increased by raising treatment pH 6 to 10, the temperature $30^{\circ}C\;to\;60^{\circ}C$ Enzyme treatment brought about a remarkable increase in TCA-soluble nitrogen compounds and a decrease in the contents of flatulence factors raffinose and stachyose.
