Abstract :

Nowadays, people disturbed by the use of formaldehyde as a preservative. Theoccurrence cases of formaldehyde has caused a lot of problems in the society, especiallythose who have been consuming food containing formaldehyde. The alternative to solvethe use of formaldehyde problem and harmful materials such as food additives is chitosan.Chitosan is a chemical compound derived from biological material chitin, an organiccompound that is abundant in nature after cellulose. Chitin is generally derived from theskeleton of invertebrate animals such as Arthopoda sp, Mollusca sp, Coelenterata sp,Annelids sp, Nematodes sp, and some group of fungi. This study used a chitosan solutionto soak the meat and testing the preservative potency with early decay test, organoleptictest, and microbiological test. The concentration of chitosan solution was 1%, 2%, 3%,4%, and as a control for comparison used 1% formaldehyde solution. The concentrationof chitosan solution which is effectively used as a preservative in meat is 1%, becausefrom the result it can inhibit the growth of bacteria until 0 and organoleptic appearance ofthe meat was still good. Chitosan can be used as a preservative instead of formaldehydebecause chitosan is more safety.
