This study is designed to evaluate the effect of wheat flour substitution with Clerodendrum volubile at different level (1, 3, 5 and 10%) on antioxidant, proximate, mineral and sensory acceptability of wheat bread. The wheat flour was substituted with CVLP at different level (1, 3, 5, and 10%) in the baking of the wheat bread. The inclusion of CVLP led to significant (p < 0.05) and dose dependent increases in the polyphenol contents and antioxidant properties of the CVLP-substituted bread. Also, there were significant (p < 0.05) increments in the crude fibre, crude ash and many mineral elements of the CVLP-substituted breads. Antinutrient (tannins and oxalate) contents of the wheat bread substituted with 10% CVLP were significantly higher (p < 0.05) than the wheat bread. Consumer acceptability of the substituted breads showed that wheat bread with 5% CVLP inclusion has the best acceptance. Therefore, 5% CVLP inclusion is recommended as a suitable level in the bread making.
