Germination facilitates improvement of the nutritive quality of grains by enhancing the contents and availability of nutrients. In the present study, an attempt has been made to use these malted grains in the preparation of biscuits with a view of producing a better quality product. Moreover, a green leafy vegetable in the powdered form has been added to biscuits to further enhance the nutritive value of the product prepared from already modified grains. Malted grains have been successfully used in various weaning foods for infants and preschool children to increase the energy density of the feed and decrease the paste viscosity.
