- The utilization of second grade flour which produced from 72% extraction mills and this flour represent 5% of whole wheat that rich in vitamins and minerals and can not be sold. It could be added to bran fraction and could be mixed with flour 82% with 40% percentage to produce balady bread.
- Find other substitutes as berry and sorghum to mix with wheat flour with the same quality of the regular one since FTRI managed to produce balady bread with beery and damaged rice and keeping its same high quality .
