Wheat is one of the major cereals which are processed by milling into flour. The aim of this research is to examine the degree (percentage) of milling will affect the concentration of Fe and Zn in obtained flour of two soft wheat varieties (Triticum aestivum). Analyses were performed by flame atomic absorption spectroscopy. Ascertained higher concentrations of Fe and Zn were found in seeds of two wheat varieties "treska" Fe -44(mg / kg) and Zn29 (mg/kg) and "radica" Fe - 47 (mg/kg), Zn -19 (mg/kg) compared with concentrations in their flour, the "treska" Fe -10.5 (mg/kg) and Zn-9.8 (mg/kg) and "radica" Fe – 10.3 (mg/kg), Zn -9.2 (mg/kg). We can conclude that the process of milling the wheat grain by reducing the percentage of milling leads to a loss of important micronutrients and acquire flour with lower nutritional value. Keywords: treska, radica, wheat, Fe, Zn, milling
