The functional, physicochemical and sensory evaluation of bread from wheat and garden peas flours were investigated. Five (5) bread samples were produced from the proportion of wheat and garden pea flours as 90%:10% (B), 80%:20% (C), 70%:30% (D), 60%:40% (E) and 100% wheat was the control sample (A) using standard methods. All the functional parameters differed (p≤0.05) significantly. The moisture, crude protein, crude fat, Ash and crude fiber increased (p≤0.05) significantly while the carbohydrate content decrease (p≤0.05) significantly with corresponding increase in the percentage of the composite flour from 10-40%. The result of the physical properties showed that there was a significant difference in all the physical parameters. Also, sensory results showed that there were significant differences in all the sensory scores. However, consumers preferred the bread from 100% wheat flour and 90% and 10% (Sample B) of wheat and garden peas flours substitution.

Wheat and garden peas flours, functional analysis, proximate analysis, physical analysis, sensory attributes.
