The rheological and sensory properties kind (apricot, grape and mulberry molasses) blends were studied pestil (rollband) syrup of apricot, mulberry and grape at 25, 40, 50 and 70°C, rheological properties kind of pestil syrup (untreatment and treatment with sulphurapricot molasses) blends were studied using sugar concentrations of 0%, 5% and 10%. The empirical power law model fitted the apparent viscosityrotational speed data. All blends exhibited pseudoplasticbehavior. The syrup content and temperature influenced the flow behavior and consistency index values. Temperature sensitivity of the consistency index was assessed by applying an Arrhenius-type equation. Ea values ranged from 326,65 to 175,86 J mol s-1 as syrup content varied from apricot, grape to mulberry, respectively. Arrhenius constant, k, however, correlated with mouthcoating.
