Boza is a traditional Turkish beverage made by yeast and lactic acid bacteria fermentation of millet, cooked maize, wheat, or rice semolina/flour. In this research oat meal was used in boza powder production. Further, boza was enriched with demineralized (70%) whey powder in different ratio of 0, 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5%. After fermentation, boza samples were dried with sprey drier. Fermentation pH, color values (L, a and b) and some chemical, microbiological and sensory properties were determined in boza and boza powder samples. Oat boza containing 7.5 % whey powder had lower pH at the beginning and ending of the fermentation process. Ash content of oat boza samples ranged from 0.9956 to 1.8717%. The highest titratable acidity value was determined oat boza that contained 7.5% whey powder. Protein contents of samples were increased depending on the ratio of whey powder added. Average values for the different microbiological counts of boza samples were supplemented with whey powder (0, 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5%) were as follows respectively, 4.5x108, 4.6x108, 14.2x108 and 23x108 cfu/g for TAMB; 3.6x108, 4.7x108 7.5x108 and 16.5x108cfu/g for LAB; and 6.4x108, 2.4x108, 5.5x108 and 9.3x108 cfu/g for yeast. Optimum sensory profiles were obtained with samples containing 2.5% whey powder.
