Triticale (Trilicosecale Wittm.) is a young, economical crop and its acreage has continuously been growing as the susiainability of farming is having superior status in all over the world. Today, triticale is a typical "on-farm" crop: farmers desire it as feedstock at their properties. Research reports however, revealed that this crop may be a useful, new ingredient in human consumption. This study is about the present situation and prospect of triticale production and utilization, particularly in human consumption. Lately, three environmentally sound triticale variety were developed in our institution for farmers for both low input, ecu-production and conventional agronomical systems. In this study, we examined the most important milling and baking characteristics of these new triticale varieties. Two of the tested triticales proved to have high alpha-amylase activities suggesting that using triticale component in target flour blends is desirable when improving the poor amylase activity of wheat components. The first Hungarian-bred spring triticale cultivar GK Idus has got exceptionallyhigh kernel hardness as well as protein content. Thus, GK Idus can be used fairly in development of various whole mail cereals and confectionary' industry. The results showed that all the tested triticales are suitable to use in human consumption, particularly to compose valuable flour blends using 10-50% triticale flour and 50-90% bread wheat flours as components. Triticale cultivar GK Szemes having exceedingly high loaf volume may be particularly valuable constituent in forthcoming baking industry.
