An investigation on the quality characteristics of wheat bread enriched with seeds of high-oleic sunflower is reported which included important parameters that affect its nutritional quality (chemical composition, fatty acid composition: saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, linoleic and linolenic acid, tocopherol content: α-, β-, γ-, δ-content of essential microelement selenium) and its sensory quality. The study also includes the assessment of a persistent pollutant, benzo[a]pyrene. The objective of the study was to determine and compare the concentrations of nutrients and contaminants of the control and enriched wheat bread in order to assess the benefits and potential risks of regular consumption of these products. It was found that bread enriched with seeds of high-oleic sunflower would significantly improve the daily intake of fat, fibre, selenium, α-tocopherol and linolenic acid. Regular consumption of a daily portion of such bread (300 g) would not incur significantly increased health risk from contaminant.
