Characteristics of Paracaudina australis Vitamin And Minerals from Pelawan and Tanjung Melolo Beach, Karimun, Riau Islands
Brunok (P. australis) was one of the marine biota that has not been utilized optimally especially in Kabupaten Karimun, Kepulauan Riau. The purpose of this research was to find out the comparison of the highest content of vitamins and minerals from brunok meat based on different taked locations in Kabupaten Karimun. Brunok from Pelawan Beach contained Vitamins A and B12, namely Vitamin A 198.92 IU, Vitamin B12 0.234 IU and Brunok Cape Melolo contained Vitamin A 214.59 IU, Vitamin B12 0.195 IU. The content of Pelawan Beach Brunok contained Sodium (Na) 4,550 mg, Potassium (K) 154,339 mg, Calcium (Ca) 287,870 mg, Phosphorus (P) 326,787 mg, and Micro Minerals namely Iron (Fe) 3,921 mg. Whereas the Mineral content of Brunok Cape Melolo meat was Sodium (Na) 5,114 mg, Potassium (K) 160,126 mg, Calcium (Ca) 258,212 mg, Phosphorus (P) 341,218 mg, and Micro Minerals namely Iron (Fe) 2,89 mg. The highest mineral content of Phosphorus (P) from the two waters of Kabupaten Karimun was found in the waters of Tanjung Melolo, that was 341,218 mg.
