The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality characteristics of mung bean starch jellies prepared with additions of white lotus steam juice at differing levels (0, 2, 4, 6, 8 mL). The proximate composition of the lotus steam juice was 96.37±0.04 g/100 g for moisture, 0.75±0.01 g/100 g for crude protein, 0.24±0.01 g/100 g for crude fat, and 1.90±0.07 g/100 g for crude ash. As the level of lotus steam juice increased, the moisture contents and, L, a and b values of the jellies increased (p<0.05). However, the L value of the WSL8 group did not differ significantly. According to the mechanical evaluation results, hardness values of the WSL4 and WSL6 groups were increased (p<0.05), whereas, cohesiveness, gumminess and adhesiveness were not significantly different among the groups. Springiness was higher (p<0.05) in the WSL8 group compared to the other groups, and, chewiness was higher (p<0.05) in the WLS6, and WSL8 groups than in the WSL2 group. According to the sensory evaluations, the mung bean starch jellies prepared with 4~6 mL of lotus steam juice received the highest preference scores and were therefore chosen as optimal products.
