Research on Effect of Skimmed-Milk and Starter Addition on Lactic Acid Formation in Soyghurt has been done. Soyghurt is a probiotic drinking product made from soy-milk produced by fermentation process using lactic acid bacteria. The bacteria used as starter was Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophillus. The objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of skimmed-milk and starter addition on the formation of lactic acid. Variables used in this research was skimmed-milk concentration of 5, 10, and 15% and starter concentration of 3, 5, and 7%, based on volume of soy-milk used as raw material. The soy-milk used was analyzed for its carbohydrate and protein content, and the soyghurt produced was analyzed for its lactic acid, pH and syneresis. The result showed that carbohydrate and protein content in soy-milk was 122.39 mg/L and 2.75%, respectively. The best condition of this process was the addition of 15% skimmed-milk and 5% starter, which yielded the highest lactic acid of 15% with pH of 4.23 and syneresis of 15%. It can be concluded that increasing skimmed-milk concentration cause the increase in lactic acid formation and decrease pH and syneresis. While effect of starter concentration on product analysis was influenced by the amount of nutrition contain in soy-milk.
