Abstract : Dyslipidemia in Indonesia is one of major health issues. Some examples such as figures from Central Bogor sub-district in the city of Bogor, West Java, Indonesia, showed that the proportion of lipid profile was quite large, i.e. LDL (80.3%), HDL (56.2%), total cholesterol (49%), and triglyceride (18.5%). Data retrieved from 2013 Basic Health Research also showed that dyslipidemia occurred at any age starting 15 years and older in urban and rural areas (39.5% vs. 32.1% respectively), while hypertriglyceridemia reached 13%. Fermented glutinous black rice (FGBR) has been proven to improve metabolic disorder indices, due to its rich content of antioxidant and fibres. In this study we modified FBGR into a snack bar for dyslipidemia intervention. To assess the efficacy of FGBR snack as a high antioxidant and fiber to improve lipid profile in dyslipidemia patients. A randomised control trial was conducted to assess the efficacy of FBGR snack containing high antioxidant, which is low in glucose but rich in fibre. Samples in this study were 52 adults who were dyslipidemia. Allocation into treatment groups and control group were made equal. Data was obtained from interviews, and blood tests were performed before and after intervention using independent t-test analysis. The results of the study showed that there were significant differences of efficacy in FGBR snack bar consumption to reduce the total cholesterol (p=0.003), triglyceride (p<0.001), LDL Cholesterol (p=0.002), and HDL cholesterol (p<0.001). There were significant differences of efficacy of FGBR snack bar to improve lipid profile. Therefore, FBGR snack bar has the potential to improve dyslipidemia condition
