The quality of flours obtained from 10 triticale cultivars and its usefulness in the manufacture of cookies were studied. Factors affecting cookie quality were also analyzed. The results obtained show that triticale flours are suitable for cookie manufacture. Best quality is related with flours exhibiting low protein content, high prolamine percentage with a high proportion of species with a molecular mass approximately 34 kDa, low glutenin content with a low proportion of species with a molecular mass <30 kDa, and low content of free sulfhydryl groups.
