Consumer acceptability and preference was associated with consumer perception toward food innovations. Generally, innovation food product utilized a potentially byproduct foodstuff such as rind and seed derived from high productivity fruit. One of underutilized by-product which has beneficial nutrition content was rambutan seed (RS). RS can be developed into several well-known food products with RS incorporation (namely: ting ting tanji, emping jijo, choco biscuit, semprit biscuit, ladyfingers, baked brownies) as one of innovation product. The objectives of this study were to: 1) identify consumer demographic profile; 2) evaluate consumer acceptance on RS products sensory attributes; 3) know consumer preferences on RS development products. Data collection performed with observation sheet and hedonic test of 6 products’ sensory attributes with 9-point hedonic scale in Likert (1932) questionnaire. Data was collected from community members (n=115) in Resapombo, Ndoko district, Blitar. The result showed that 1) consumer demographic profile was mostly in productive age, finished high school education, has a working status and had less than one million rupiah family monthly income; 2) consumer acceptance on sensory attributes of the products generally in taste and odor aspect; 3) the consumer preference on the products was sequentially at baked brownies, ting ting tanji, ladyfingers, semprit biscuits, choco biscuits and emping jijo. The result contributed in by-waste product utilization intended in functional food development.
