Despite its assignment in the category of the underutilized crop, the white yam is only applied as food for animals. This research then focuses on the formulation of native delicacies specifically puto utilizing different percentages levels of white yam flour as a substitute for wheat flour. The study made use of the experimental method of research. Fifty individuals consisting of students, housewives, farmers, and faculty were the evaluators. The panel of evaluators was invited for the sensory testing of the products made. Frequency count, percentage, weighted mean, and analysis of variance were the statistical tools used. The result of the study concluded that the use of wheat flour is comparable with the formulation of 50% white yam flour and 50% wheat flour in the formulation of puto based on color, aroma, taste, and consistency.
