APPENDIX METHOD OF PREPARATION OF SOYBEAN MILK FORMULA SMS-5410
1. Raw Materials and their Treatment
Soybean. Remove sand, spoiled beans, seeds other than soybean, and other impurities. Immerse the selected beans in water at room temperature ;15°C) for 4 hours, just allowing the beans to swell. Steam the soaked beans in a steam cooker at atmospheric pressure for 30 minutes. Spread the hot beans over a mat and blow with an electric fan to remove the water vapor. If the latter is not removed quickly, the husk of the bean becomes sticky and difficult to remove afterwards. Dry the cooked beans in a hot-air chamber, or preferably in a rotating drum drier, at 70 to 80°C While crushing the beans slightly with a loosely adjusted mill, remove the husk and germs by the aid of an electric fan. The germs, if not removed, will impart a bitter taste to the final product.
Grind the husked beans with a hammer mill (electric, 5,000 RPM) and pass the flour through an 80-mesh sieve. Repeat grinding the coarse particles. The extraction rate is about 90 per cent.
Rice. Wash the rice once or twice with the least possible amount of water to remove impurities. Do not rub the rice with hands while washing. Soak the rice in water for about 15 minutes, then spread it on a mat and leave it for 1 to 2 hours. Grind the moist rice and pass the flour through a 100-mesh sieve. Repeat grinding the coarse particles. The extraction rate is about 70 per cent. Dry the moist flour in a hot-air chamber at 70 to 80°C. (If rice is ground dry, the particles become coarse and hard).
Cane sugar. Use dried, granulated cane sugar and grind it to a fine powder in a hammer mill.
Soybean of. Heat pure soybean oil to a temperature of about 200°C until smoke disappears.
Egg yolk. Use spray-dried egg yolk powder or the yolk of freshly boiled egg. In the latter case, the amount must be calculated on a dry basis.
Millet If millet is used, grind the dried material and pass the flour through a 100-mesh sieve. Keep the flour away from direct sunlight.
Salt Dry the salt first before grinding and pass the ground powder through a 100-mesh sieve.
Bone powder. Degelatinized bones (bones of the front and hind limbs from the slaughter house), the by-product of a glue factory, are used. (These bones have been treated with steam under 20 to 25 pounds of pressure for 10 hours and repeatedly extracted with hot water). Clean the bones thoroughly with water. Air-dry the washed bones and crush them into small pieces about the size of peas. Grind to powder and pass through a 120-mesh sieve.
Weigh accurately each ingredient according to the formula. Mix millet or riboflavin, bone meal, and salt with a portion of the rice flour. Add egg yolk powder and sugar and mix again. Mix the oil with the remaining portion of rice flour. Combine the two mixtures. Finally, add soybean flour and mix. Pass the mixture through 80-mesh sieve at least twice to ensure evenness.
Weigh a definite quantity of the above mixture and spread it on a specially made tray. Level the powder evenly and press with a wooden board. Cut into small rectangular cubes with a knife. Sixteen cubes weigh 125 9.
Place the tray with the cut cubes in a steamer, and steam for 30 minutes.
Place the tray with the cooked cubes in a drying chamber at 70 to 80°C until the moisture of the finished product is less than 5 per cent.
Cool the dried cubes to room temperature; wrap them with sterilized wax paper and then place the package in a cardboard box. One package contains 16 cubes.
