Abstract

A process for the preparation of tempeh (a fermented soybean food) with a mixture of groundnut and soybean was standardized. Tempeh was prepared with 3 strains of Rhizopus oligosporus NRRL 2710, 2549 and 514. The 2 types of tempeh prepared were analysed for ash, moisture, crude fibre, total protein, total fat, total sugars, amino N, soluble solids and soluble N. The protein quality of the tempeh samples were evaluated by growth of rats, PER and NPU of diets. It was concluded that a tempeh like product could be prepared successfully with a mixture of soybean and groundnut. Fermentation of soybeans or a mixture of soybean and groundnut resulted in an increase in the crude fibre, fat and soluble solids. No differences were observed in the growth rates of rats or PER or NPU when autoclaved unfermented soybeans and soybean tempeh samples were fed. Tempeh prepared from a mixture of soybean and groundnut had a better protein quality than soy tempeh. All the tempeh samples tested had PER values greater than 2.0.
