Pemanfaatan Rumput Laut (Eucheuma cottonii) untuk Meningkatkan Kadar Iodium dan Serat Pangan pada Selai dan Dodol
MetadataShow full item record
Indonesia is known as a country rich in species of seaweed. The most important components of seaweed are iodine and dietary fiber. Eucheuma cottonii is one species of seaweed that can be used as a source of iodine and dietary fiber. Iodine deficiency can cause several diseases also known as IDD (Iodine Deficiency Disorder), while deficiency of dietary fiber can cause some degenerative diseases. This research is taken to develop the utilization of Eucheuma cottonii as an ingredient in the making of jam and "dodol" (Indonesian traditional snack food). The best ratio of seaweed and sugar for jam production was 37:63, while the best ratio of seaweed and glutinous flour in making dodol was 5:2. The addition of seaweed on jam and dodol formula increased their iodine and dietary fiber contents. The iodine content of jam and dodol was 17.79 and 19.57 mg/g, respectively. The dietary fiber content of jam and dodol was 5.75 and 5.63 %, respectively.
