The research was conducted in grain quality testing laboratory of food sciences product development institute, national agriculture research centre (NARC) Islamabad during 2019. The research was conducted on development of sprouted wheat flour, chia seeds and flax seeds flour. It was concluded that the use of sprouted wheat flour is an economic way to improve nutritional profile of food. However, the addition of sprouted wheat flour which cause the weakening of the dough so chia seeds addition helps the dough to avoid weakening and improve the technological quality of dough.

Key words: Cereal based foods, proximate, mineral analysis
