The baking property, chemical composition, instrumental characteristics and sensory quality of yeast breads containing various mixing percentage of Job's-tears flour with wheat flour were studied. The loaf volume and baking quality of the yeast bread made from mixing of 30% Job's-tears flour were similar to those of wheat flour bread. The contents of crude protein, crude fat, and crude ash in Job's-tears flour breads were much higher than those of wheat flour brad. Instrumental rheological characteristics of the yeast breads were measured with a Texture Analyzer. As the addition level of Job's-tears flours increased, hardness of the yeast breads increased but fracturability, adhesiveness, springness, cohesiveness, gumminess, chewiness and resilience decreased. The results of sensory evaluation revealed that Job's-tears flour was added to wheat flour at a replacement level of 10% without a large adverse effect on flavor, taste, mouthfeel and aftertaste.
