Fact sheet | Energy boost bar

In collaboration with industry and academia, DST has developed a high-energy, gut-friendly snack bar for ADF personnel.

The use of raw green banana starch and cold press technology delivers resistant starch, a fermentable fibre that feeds the "good" bacteria in the gut.

DST is looking for a partner to work on commercialisation of the snack bar, with potential for further development of a range of supplemented foods to support military personnel.
