Objective: Replacement pat mocaf wheat flour is excellent for reducing the social demand for wheat.
Method:This type of research is the verification or experiment. The tipe of data is primari data baset on prosimate analisis and acceptance. Proximate analysis of data obtained by the test methonds and test procimate laboraturium receives power obtainet by hedonic test then analized using a computer program.
Results: This result indicates that chemical composition of flour mocaf among others, as much as 0,28%, ash content, protein content as 1,79%, fat content of 0,68%, carbohydrate content of 83,40% and acceptance test from the aspect of flavor, texture and color cookies panelists counld not distinguish the taste, texture, color in 3 formulas cookies were produced
Suggestion: Modifies cassava flour (mocaf) can be used to make various tipes of cake as an alternative to replace the wheat. For further research should conduct laboratory testing of the nutrient content of the flour-based cookies mocaf
