In order to investigate the effects of the mixing ratio of rice on Doenjang, Meju Doenjang and Koji Doenjang were prepared respectively with oaring mix ratio of raw materials. The following results were obtained, after fermentation of up to 3 months. Significant differences between the kinds of Doenjang were not found in moisture and salt contents. Protein solubility $(water\;soluble\;nitrogen/total\;nitrogen{\times}100)$ was $32{\sim}50%$ and $14{\sim}24%$ in Koji Doenjang and Meju Doenjang, respectively. Protein digestibility $(formol\;nitrogen/total\;nitrogen{\times}100)$ was similar to the tendency of protein solubility. Reducing sugar content was $5{\sim}6%$ in Meju Doenjang, while $19{\sim}21%$ in Koji Doenjang. As the mixing ratio of rice increased, reducing sugar content also increased. Sensory evaluation showed that Koji Doenjang was desirable than Meju Doenjang and the mixing ratio of 20% rice was recommened for Koji Doenjang.
