The nutritive value and organoleptic properties were studied on white Arabic bread supplemented with 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50% chickpea flour and 4, 6, 8, and 10% soybean flour. Supplementation both with chickpea and soybean enhanced the nutritive value of the bread as shown by animal experiments. Amino acid analysis of supplemented bread revealed a net increase in lysine level. The organoleptic properties of the chickpea-supplemented bread compared favorably with the unsupplemented bread up to a level of 20% supplementation. Soybean-supplemented bread results showed a net increase in the available protein as compared to plain bread or L-lysine supplemented bread. Arabic bread supplemented with up to 10% soybean flour showed a high level of acceptability when compared to unsupplemented bread.
