The buckwheat flour was studied as a potential healthy ingredient for improving the nutritional and techno-logical quality of gluten-free bread. The effect of exchange of gluten-free formulation mass by buckwheat flour in 10, 20, 30 and 40 % was investigated. The increase in loaf specific volume with rising buckwheat flour addition was observed. Compared with the control sample, decrease in whiteness and increase in redness and yellowness of crumb were noticed. The rising amount of buckwheat flour in gluten-free bread formulation caused a decrease in crumb hardness during storage. This was in agreement with the decrease in starch gelatinisation enthalpy with the increasing amount of buckwheat flour in gluten-free formula in com-parison with the control sample. Buckwheat flour could be incorporated into gluten-free formula and have a positive influence on bread texture and delaying its staling.
