Multigrain bread reported to have a lot of health benefits as it is rich in thiamine, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, iron, zinc and copper.The materials used for packaging are typically wax-coated paper. All the raw materials are available.


Any new product development will undergo the following testing. Moisture content, total ash, crude fibre, crude protein, texture profile analysis, colour analysis, specific volume, and organoleptic characteristics. Specific Nutrition and Health Claim can be proposed based on the ingredients and quantity of ingredients used to prepare the bread. To claim the product as “Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancer”, according to FDA, 51% of the weight of the ingredients must be whole grain.
