EFEK PENAMBAHAN EKSTRAK RUMPUT LAUT Eucheuma Cottonii PADA PEMBUATAN ES BATU TERHADAP KEMUNDURAN MUTU KERANG LOKAN (Geloina erosa) DAN KERANG DARAH (Anadara granosa)
Phylum molusca is a group of animals that are soft-bodied and have no spine (invertebrates). One of the phylum molusca is a class of Bivalvia that is generally in the form of lateral symmetry, a type of bivalvia that is often found in the water of Riau Islands is Lokan shells (Geloina erosa) and Darah shells (Anadara granosa) that live in tidal areas. The purpose of this study is to find out if the addition of water ice cubes resulting from the extraction of seaweed Echeuma Cottonii is effective for lokan shells and blood shells. Based on the results of the study obtained for the meat rendment of each shell is 85.39% in lokan shells and 84.27% in darah shells. Organoleptic results showed a more effective treatment of shellfish treatment with the addition of regular ice cubes, Water Holding Capacity (WHC) for the treatment of water ice cube extract binding or absorbing more water than regular ice cube treatment. The second pH of shellfish from three treatments had a value below 7, the lowest acidic pH obtained treatment with seaweed ice cubes.
