Soya cheese was evaluated for physico-chemical, microbial and sensory quality parameters. Based on this evaluation, T3 (85:15) which was prepared by using 85% cow milk with 15% soya milk was found to be the most accepted and the best product. It contain carbohydrate-4.84%, protein-19.90%, fat-13.20%, ash-3.76%, total solid-41.70%, moisture-58.30%, acidity-0.63%, calcium-271.50 (mg) and calorific value-217.76 per 100gm respectively.
