Chestnut processing plants have wasted large amounts of chestnut inner skin waste, which contains chestnut flesh. To review the availability of the chestnut flesh as a food ingredient, We have analyzed the physiochemical characteristics of the chestnut powder extracted from inner skin waste. Then, we have examined on tastes and other sensory tests using breads, noodles and jellies made from various percents of chestnut powder. The results are as follows; The water absorbing capability and amylose degradability of the powder from the inner skin waste are 40% and 8% higher than those of the core chestnut powder, respectively. Also, the power from the inner skin waste shows similar characteristics with one of the core chestnut in iodine reaction. The breads, noodles and jellies from the chestnut powder have similar characteristics in flavor, hardness, elasticity, cohesiveness, adhesiveness, chewing property, and gumminess with the traditional ones.
