Fat replacers can be used to help decrease the amount of fats used in cooking; therefore, these health risks can be reduced. This study showed that Sensory quality was assessed by ten experienced panelists from Desert Research center, using attributes such as bread taste, flavor, firmness, softness, crumb and crust colors, appearance and overall acceptability.

It is concluded that treatments with 25% and 50% fat replacement were tastier and more acceptable.
