Abstract: The global food market is seeing a surge in demand for high-nutritional-value items derived from sustainable sources. In this research, the rheological characteristics of soy, hemp, brown rice, pea proteins were studied to indicate the ability and type of formation that can occur when the sample is under specific conditions. Viscosity is the main scope of this study to indicate the functional properties included solubility, emulsifying and foaming properties, gelling ability, and water holding capacity. All samples were prepared and accurately measured in water-based solutions, with the addition of NaCl (salt) that can change the functional properties of the protein solution. Measuring the viscosity in time intervals with heating, to indicate the viscose characteristics of the solution. The identification of viscoelasticity was determined though similar research as the results indicated similar formation characteristics and flow of the viscose solution.
