Protein enriched cereal bar is made in order to keep in mind todays life style, as people are more fond of junk food. Food consumption is just one of the multiple factors which have an impact on the nutritional status of the overall population. A primary contributor to obesity is the increase in unhealthy eating habits. Ready to eat Protein bar is made to combat unhealthiest junk food. Nutritional composition of protein enriched cereal bar is pronounced to be a good source of protein and minerals. A protein enriched composite cereal bar composed in combination of healthful ingredients, all these ingredients are readily available and affordable. The storage stability of protein enriched composite cereal bar  will include complete proximate analysis (crude protein, crude fiber, crude fat, ash content)  and their antioxidant capacity (Vitamin C, total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, radical scavenger activity, DPPH) due to their bioactive compounds.
