      The study used completely randomized design with five treatments of carragenan concentrations (0%, 0.25%, 0.50%, 0.75%, 1%). The carragenan were added to soy milk prior to coagulation of tofu. The treatments were replicated three times. Samples of tofu whey were analized for its total solids (%) and samples of tofu were analized for its dry matter yield (kg/kg soy milk). The correlation between whey total solids and dry matter yield of tofu was also determined. The data show that the increase in the concentration of carragenan (0%-0.75%) would increase dry matter yield. But no significant increase in dry matter yield when carragenan applied in the concentration of 1%. Inversely, as increase in carragenan concentration (0%-0.75%) applied to soy milk, whey total solids decreased. There was a correlation between dry matter yield and whey total solids. There would be two advantages using carragenan in the process of making tofu, firstly, a significantly increase in dry matter yield, and secondly, a solution to environment problem by reducing whey total solids.
