In the present study, soy flour (SF) and carob flour (CF) were used as a substitute for wheat flour (WF) in 6 different pasta formulations. The effect of SF and CF on the quality properties of the enriched pasta formulations was investigated. With the increase in SF and CF, ash, protein, dietary fiber content of the pasta increased whereas moisture, fat, and carbohydrate contents decreased. With the increase in CF, a significant decrease was observed in the L* (brightness) value and an increase in b* value with an addition of SF. The addition of SF and CF reduced the amount of substance passed to the water, improving the quality of the pasta. According to the results of sensory analysis, the highest values in terms of the overall evaluation were determined in the D (80 WF: 0 SF: 20 CF) and the E (80 WF: 20 SF: 0 CF) samples, and it was determined that up to 20% SF and CF can be recommended. According to the study results, it was thought that SF and CF can be used as functional food additives in different food formulations to improve the functional and nutritional properties of food products.
