Abstract

This research was conducted to obtain the procedure for the production of herb powder based on Indonesian local Kaempferia galanga commodities which have proximate as well as metals and microbes contamination level that meet the requirements in the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) 01-3709-1995. Blanching and drying procedures are two things optimized in the production process of Kaempferia galanga powder in this study. The results show that the blanching procedure at a temperature of 80 °C has induced an increase in water content even though it is still below the SNI threshold. However, the application of drying procedures accompanied by increasingly intensive raw material reversal treatment has compensated for the increase in water content. Along with these conditions, there has been a decrease in ash as well as acid insoluble ash content of the resulting Kaempferia galanga herb products. This condition was strengthened by the results of the metal and microbes contamination levels analysis which showed a significant decrease, especially in the levels of copper metal contamination (25%), total plate number (9.56%) and aflatoxin (66.67%) of the Kaempferia galanga herbs powder products are produced by involving blanching stages accompanied by 2 times/hour reversal treatment
