The search for food products with nutritional and functional appeal coupled with curiosity about new types and availability of food, as well as ready-made and / or ready-toeat foods has increased in recent decades. In this scenario, the development of bean gluten free products is attractive due to its high protein content, dietary fiber, complex carbohydrates, and the presence of B vitamins, minerals as well as phenolic compounds, antioxidants and anthocyanins. Therefore, the development of quick cooking noodles and bean snacks at low cost is an option for improving the nutritional quality of these products. Following this trend, another alternative to consumers is the common bean tempeh, typically produced by the solid fermentation of soybean by the fungus Rhizopus oligosporus. The objective of this study was to develop pasta, biscuits and bean temp-eh hamburger, and to evaluate their composition and sensorial acceptance. The pasta and biscuits were developed from precooked carioca and black bean flours, and the temp-eh produced with 100% carioca or white bean grains as well as with the mixture of carioca beans and soybeans (1:1). The best temp-eh composition was used to formulate the temp-eh hamburger. Pasta and snack crackers made from carioca and black beans showed high protein and fiber content, low caloric value when compared to commercial products based on wheat flour. BT presented a remarkable reduction of the protein content in relation to the traditional soybean temp-eh, but presented high fiber content, lower caloric value and antioxidant activity. Hamburgers had reasonable acceptability by consumers and resembled chicken hamburger. In general, the products developed showed good sensory acceptance, nutritional and functional appeal, that is, they raised the desires of consumers who search for practical foods without giving up the nutritional quality or healthy properties. In addition, they can be used as a good protein source for vegans and vegetarians.
