The antioxidant activity and sensory quality of Yanggaeng added with paprika (juice or paste) were investigated. Paprika juice (PJ) or paste (PP) mixed with water at ratios of 0:10 (control), 2:8 (1), 4:6 (2), 6:4 (3), 8:2 (4), and 10:0 (5) were used as ingredients for Yanggaeng. The pH levels of Yanggaeng added with PJ and PP were lower than that of control, and it decreased with increasing PJ or PP contents. Lightness values of PJ and PP Yanggaeng were lower than that of control. Redness and yellowness of PP Yanggaeng was higher than those of PJ Yanggaeng. Hardness, springiness, and cohesiveness were the highest in control and decreased with the amount of PJ or PP. Total polyphenol contents and DPPH radical scavenging activity of PP5 Yanggaeng were the highest. Sensory evaluation showed that color, taste, flavor, texture, and overall acceptability of PJ and PP Yanggaeng were higher than those of control. PJ4 Yanggaeng showed the highest taste (4.46) and overall acceptability (4.23) values, respectively. Sensory quality of PP1 Yanggaeng showed the highest levels of color, taste, flavor, texture, and overall acceptability among PP Yanggaeng.
