Rheological properties of micronized full-fat soyflour (MFS ) milk were determined according to solid content, heat-treatment and type of coagulants. Heat-treated MFS milk showed a pseudoplastic flow pattern. The consistency and flow index of heated MFS milk was greatly affected by increasing the concentration of MFS and/or soy protein isolate (SPI). Apparent viscosity of MFS milk was gradually decreased by heating below 6$0^{\circ}C$, but was drastically increased by raising temperature further. Addition of coagulants and SPI resulted in dropping the temperature that allows to increase apparent viscosity drastically. A coagulant for MFS tofu was formulated based on the gelling Property of a single coagulant. The textural properties of MFS tofu were improved using 7.1% total protein fortified with SPI.
