A porridge ready for use with good sensory characteristics and apparent colloidal stability was investigated, using different proportions of rice and soybeans and following manufacture steps: soybean dehulling, blanching, desintegration and homogenization of rice and soybeans. The formulated porridges were subjected to sensory analysis and evaluated regarding their chemical centesimal composition, mineral content and separation index. The porridges containing 80:20, 70:30 and 60:40% rice:soybean had better appearance, flavor and texture. However, when flavored with vanilla, the porridges with 30 and 40% soybeans were more appreciated, and when flavored with coconut, only the porridge with 40% soybeans was the most appreciated by the consumer-type panelists. The above mentioned porridges presented excellent apparent colloidal stability and good mineral composition.
