Abstract


been carried out. The purpose of the study was to find the best formulae of the soft candy. The properties of the soft candy especially the moisture content, ash content and toxicity were exxmined. The results show that the formulae with sorbitol and curcuma of 39.5 g and 1 g respectively (A3B3) has the highest moisture content that is 14.52%, while the lowest is 11.89% which was obtained in the formulae containing curcuma of 0.5 g and sorbitol of 37.5 g (A1B1). The highest ash content was obtained in the formulae containing sorbitol of 38.5 g and curcuma of 0.5 g (A2B1). The value is 1.1739%.The lowest ash content was found in the formulae containing 38.5 g of sorbitol and 1 g of curcuma (A2B3), the value is 1.505%. The toxicity test results show that the soft candy has no bio-active properties. The LC50 of the candy is more than 1000 ppm. Based on hedonic/organoleptic test, the soft candy with sorbitol and curcuma of 75% and 0.25% respectively is the most prefered.
