Garden cress (GC) is a fast-growing edible plant. Seeds, leaves and roots of GC are of economic importance, however, the crop is mainly cultivated for seeds. GC seeds have been used in traditional medicine since ancient times in India. Despite of its great medicinal value, L. sativum has not received the attention it deserves and has remained an under-utilized crop altogether. In present study efforts were made to separate bran from seed and its chemical composition was determined. The possibility of using it as nutraceutical food ingredient in cookies formulation was explored. Results revealed that GC seed bran contains5.32 % moisture, 13.61 %protein, 52.05 % carbohydrates, 7.29 % fat, 5.60 % ash, 16.13 %crude fiber and 74.22 % dietary fiber. Mineral composition (mg per 100 g) of GC bran such as calcium, phosphorous, iron and zinc was 623.11, 182.09, 5.96 and 2.69. 05, 10, 15 and 20 % GC seed bran were incorporated in cookies formulation on 100g flour basis. Sensory analysis revealed highest overall acceptability for sample containing 10% GC seed bran. Addition of GC seed bran showed significant increase in dietary fiber and minerals content of cookies. It was concluded that GC seed bran fortification can improve nutritional and functional characteristics of cookies.
