In this study; instead of the wheat used tempered corn in the local Maras tarhana, which is rich in nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats and proteins. For this purpose, tempered corn was substituted for wheat at proportions rates 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% traditional Maras tarhana samples were produced. That’s why developing a new product with both the work, and to create a wider area of use for corn. New products were conducted, physical, chemical organoleptic analysis and compared with traditional Maras tarhana as control sample under the same conditions. As a result of this research, it was observed that tempered corn affected the chemical and organoleptic characteristics of the traditional Maras tarhana positively and it has been determined that the most suitable ratios of tempered corn to be used in Maras tarhana production were 10% and 20%.
