In this study two wheat and one triticale cultivars were milled in a disc mill to obtain different levels of damaged starch. The effects of the damaged starch content on physicochemical flour tests and cookie and bread-making quality were analyzed. The grain milling conditions in disc mill and grain hardness influenced the amount of damaged starch. The solvent absorption of flours, as measured by Solvent Retention Capacity Profile (SRC) and Alkaline Water Retention Capacity (AWRC), was significantly incremented by the damaged starch content. There was a consistent loss in cookie quality as the damaged starch content increased. In spite of the fact that the proteins were not affected by flour milling, bread quality decreased as the damaged starch content increased.
