Abstract

The term “super food” has become a buzzword in the language of food and health. Going for healthy snack is always a wiser choice in comparison to choosing unhealthy and junk food potions. A super food bar was developed by blending the chia seeds, flax seeds, and watermelon seeds with dates and other ingredients in three different variations. The nutrient composition, sensory qualities, and storage characteristics of the product were analyzed. The developed bar was evaluated for sensory attributes, and the keeping quality was evaluated by standardized methods. Organoleptic evaluation showed significant difference between the variations and variation-3 obtained highest score. The nutrient composition of the finalized product as follows: protein 11.7 g, fat 20.8 g, calcium 230.6 mg, iron 5.6 mg, ω-3 fatty acids 6.46 mg, and dietary fiber 11.84 g/100 g of bar. Shelf life of the product was about 45 days under normal conditions when stored in refrigeration condition. The work indicates the potential of using of chia seeds, flax seeds, and watermelon seeds develop nutri rich bar for all age groups.
