Five samples of breakfast cereal were produced by mixing the flours (white rice-Soybean composites with graded levels of defatted coconut flour) at ratio 100:0, 95:5 90:10, 85:15, 80:20, in order to generate dry convenience food products. The proximate composition and the anti-nutrient properties (Oxalate and tannin) were determined. The proximate composition ranged from 10.20-11.00% moisture, 22.38-30.30%, protein, 14.08-18.13% fat, 2.11-3.30% crude fiber, 1.05–2.40% Ash and 39.74-42.60% carbohydrates. While the oxalate and tannin compositions have the range of 0.47-1.47 mg/100 g and 0.07-1.87 mg/100 g respectively. It was discovered that the inclusion of soybeans and defeated coconut flours improved the nutritional quality of breakfast cereal significantly and the anti-nutrient composition were found to be less that the recommended safe level.
