Abstract


THE EFFECT OF IMMERSION IN GEL OF ALOE VERA ON THE QUALITY OF  CHICKEN EGGS DURING STORAGE. The study was conducted to determine the duration effect of immersion of chicken eggs in aloe vera extract (Aloe Vera) on the quality of broiler eggs during storage. The material used in this study was freshly bred eggs at first day at weight of 55 - 60 grams. Aloe vera was obtained from the center of the ornamental plant of Bahu Village. The tools used in the study were including knives, scales, blenders, containers, diameter caliper, egg candlling, petri dishes. The method used was a completely randomized design (CRD) method with factorial pattern of a 5 x 5 with 3 replications. Factor A was the immersion time and factor B was the storage time. The observed variables were egg weight, egg white index, egg yolk index, and haugh unit. The data obtained were analyzed using ANOVA. The results of this study indicated that there was no significant difference (P> 0.05) on Egg Weight, however, there were significant differences (P< 0.05) on the egg white Index, Egg Yolk Index and Haugh Unit. Soaking eggs in aloe vera gel could extend the storage time up to 30 days.
