Many people are trying to have an ideal weight through exercise and diet. Unfortunately, this effort is not always easy because it is challenging to avoid snacking. For this reason, UNY has developed a healthy snack, namely UNYBar. "Available in milk, chocolate, banana, strawberry, vanilla, and grape flavors," said Prof. Siswantoyo. This product is one of the works of the Center of excellence for science and technology and innovation.

UNYBar contains 130 kcal calories, 6 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 16 grams of carbohydrates. The composition of UNYBar includes tempeh, corn chips, glucose, sugar, chili, ginger, margarine, lime, and sesame. The texture is crunchy and soft because corn vermicelli is added to make it crispy.

 Currently, UNYbar has been tested on the general public to be accepted by the market and 30 food experts who provide recommendations that the market can accept. Siswantoyo revealed that UNYBar was tried to be stored and lasted for more than a year without any change in taste and still delicious.

. "UNYBar can still be developed further according to market needs. For example, for diabetics, it will have a higher protein content, while for athletes or the elderly, it will have more fiber content, "said Prof. Siswantoyo. (Dedy, Tj. Lak)
