In the current study, the effect of cereal cell wall addition on farinographic and mixographic characteristics of wheat flour dough was observed. For the purpose, two varieties of each cereals i.e. wheat (Ujala-16 and FSD-08), barley (Jau-87 and Haider-93) and sorghum (Sorghum-11 and JS-02) were procured from Ayub Agriculture Research Institute (AARI), Faisalabad. In phase I, cell wall was isolated from cereals according to respective method. In phase II, cereal cell walls were added in wheat flour with concentrations of 1 and 2 % and rheological properties were determined through farinograph and mixograph. Results revealed that the addition of cereal cell walls significantly improved rheological properties of wheat flour. Higher increase in water absorption capacity, dough stability, peak height and mixing tolerance index of dough was observed with the addition of barley cell wall followed by wheat and sorghum cell walls at 2 %. Moreover, dough development time, mixing time and softness of dough were decreased more significantly through barley cell wall than wheat and sorghum cell walls. Conclusively, utilization of cereal cell wall in cereal based products improve product quality.
