Time-dependent flow properties of commercial kochujang (hot pepper-soybean paste) were evaluated at various shear rates (5, 15, 25, and 35 sec-1) and temperatures (5, 15, and 25oC). Flow properties of all samples showed thixotropic behaviors, which were qualitatively evaluated and quantitatively described by the Weltman, Hahn, and Figoni and Shoemaker models. Time-dependent flow properties of kochujang were found to vary over the range of the shear rate and temperature investigated. Time-dependent models of Weltman and Hahn were suitable (R2=0.923-0.987) for commercial kochujang.
