Pleurotus ostreatus is an edible fungus with several functional compounds. Previous studies have shown that solid-state fermentation of Phaseolus vulgaris and Avena sativa with P. ostreatus improves their functional properties. Since bread is a highly consumed foodstuff, the objective of this work was to improve its nutritional and functional properties based on P. vulgaris and A. sativa grains biotransformed by P. ostreatus. Results showed that bread made with flour of solid-state fermented grains, provided a higher antioxidant capacity compared to bread made without fermented grains flour. The antioxidant capacity was maintained even after in vitro simulated digestion assays. Bioaccessible protein and fiber content results showed an increase compared to commercial breads. Fermented-flour bread showed lower hardness in its crumb, changed color, and had a good sensory acceptability. This makes these flours potential ingredients in the development of baking goods, making the bread a vehicle for nutrient delivery.
