ABSTRACT:Functional properties of soybean and locustbean dawadawa; a bacterial fermented product, were investigated. Locustbean and soybean seeds were processed and fermented for 48h and the products; dawadawa, assayed for gelation capacity, water and oil absorption capacity; emulsion capacity and emufsion stability. Results showed that water absorption capacity (WAC) of fermented soybean incrc ased significantly .(P<0.05}, while fermentation decreased the WAC pf locustbean Also, there was a significant reduction in the oil retention capacity of fermented products. Fermentation caused a considerable reduction in the emulsification capacity of soybean dawadawa. locustbean dawadawa had least geleation concentration at 30% (WIV}. Dawadawa !hough a seasoning could be used in food systernes where some modification in the functionc1lity of the inherent basic ingredient is required, as in some Nigeria soups.
