The addition of pro-vitamin A flour to wheat flour influenced the functional properties such as water absorption, swelling and pasting properties. Peak, trough, breakdown and final viscosities of 100% wheat flour was generally lower than the mixes. However, the setback viscosity of the mixes were lower than that of wheat flour. This was attributed to possible complex formation between the starch components of the flours and the carotenoid. Protein (10.80-15.45%), fat (11.87-21.35%) and carbohydrate (60.08-70.99%) were the major components of the biscuits. The protein and fat contents of the biscuit decreased with increasing proportions of pro-vitamin A cassava flour. But, the carotenoid contents of the biscuits increased. Sensory results showed that biscuit prepared from wheat flour and pro-vitamin A cassava flour in ratio 90 to 10 had similar overall acceptability rating (6.50) and total rating score (31.8) to the control (Overall acceptability rating; 6.50 and total rating score; 32.5). The research has established that acceptable biscuits which could be potentially used to address protein, energy and vitamin A challenges in developing nations of the world. Keywords: biscuit, cassava, physicochemical properties, pro-vitamin A, pasting Introduction Biscuit is a ready to eat, convenient and inexpensive food products (Kulkarni, 1997). In many parts of the world including Nigeria, biscuit is one of the confectioneries consumed mostly by children. It is produced essentially from wheat flour, fat, sugar and water, but other ingredients may be added to enhance desired sensory attributes (Oyeyinka et al., 2014). Wheat flour is the most widely used flour for making biscuit. However, flours from other tuber crops such as cassava have also found application in the biscuit industry. These non-conventional flours have been used either singly or in combination with wheat flour as composites in making bread (Eriksson, 2013; Eriksson et al., 2014) and biscuits (Akubor and Ukwuru, 2003; Oluwole and Karim, 2005; Akingbala et al., 2011; Oluwamukomi et al., 2011; Osundahunsi et al., 2012; Thomas, 2012; Obadina et al., 2014; Oyeyinka et al., 2014). The use of composite flours in biscuit production has several implications. It may

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
