Whey, pomegranate juice proportions were standardized, ginger extract was added to enhance flavour, drumstick and cauliflower leaf powders were value added to increase iron content. The whey and the other ingredients were processed blended bottled and stored under refrigerated conditions for 30 days. Sensory, physico chemical microbiological changes were studied periodically during the storage period. Among the different proportions the beverage containing whey 55 ml pomegranate juice 40 ml was accepted and composition study increase in TSS, Acidity and pH decreased on storage over a period of 30 days.
