The white bean represents the most important nutrition legume in many coun-tries in the world, including Kosovo. It has high protein, dietary fibers and mineral content and it is mainly used in the form of cooked food. This paper has the objective to review the parameters of rheological properties, qualitative properties and nutrition values of the bread produced by adding various per-centages of the flour obtained from white bean. The results from rheological analysis of the dough indicate that with the increase of bean flour content the water absorption and the dough development time are increased; however there is a considerable tendency to reduce the extensibility, the resistance and dough energy. In addition, the increase of the white bean amount influences the decrease of the qualitative properties of bread. With the increase of the white bean flour content, one observes a considerable increase in nutrition values, especially that of proteins, cellulose and minerals. Whereas the positive Pearson correlation between qualitative properties and nutrition in the bread thus obtained exists only in the level p < 0.01, however not also for p < 0.05.
