The efficiency of dewatering of soybean milk residue was improved by hydraulic pressing after pH adjustment to 4.5 with organic acids such as acetic and lactic acids. Water content of raw soybean milk residue was reduced from 80% to 72% by pressing after pH adjustment, while only to 78% by the conventional hydraulic press. The water content of the residue after pH adjustment was further reduced to 63% by hydraulic pressing with ohmic heating. The pH adjustment facilitated separation of cake from the filter cloth and reduced the solid content of the expressed liquid from 10 to 3%.
