Soya bean (Glycine max (L) merr) is an excellent source of dietary protein, minerals and vitamins for human food. Use of soymilk in diet can help to lower the elevated cholesterol as the fatty acid compounds present in soymilk bind with cholesterol in the intestine, resulting in reduced cholesterol in the blood. To increase the consumer acceptability of tofu a study was conducted to blend tofu with buffalo milk in different ratio and was analyzed for its textural and sensory quality. It was found that overall acceptability increased for 10% replacement of soymilk with buffalo milk for preparation of tofu.
