Flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) commonly known as linseed is a member of the genus Linnum in the family Linaceae. Flaxseed is considered as a potential functional food having various health benefits and also having numerous nutritional values. It is rich in dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and lignans. The aim of the project is to formulate flaxseed powder incorporated cookies to cater for the nutritional needs of non-fish eaters. The physic-chemical parameters and sensory characteristics of the formulated cookies were also analyzed. The flaxseed cookies were formulated in three variations like 10%, 20% and 30%. The nutrients like dietary fiber, potassium, phosphorous, folic acid and antioxidant activity were analyzed using standard procedures. The organoleptic evaluation showed that the 10% flaxseed incorporated cookies showed the highest acceptability. Flaxseed powder incorporation in cookies will help to improve the health status of children who consume cookies very often.
