Abstract

Chlorophyll is plant pigment which consumed as food supplement. Chlorophyll source consumed now is from alfalfa’s leaves besides algae such as Spirulina and Chlorella.. Chlorophyll content find in all kinds of plant especially vegetables so that have potent to be source of chlorophyll. The aims of this research are first to explore another chlorophyll source beside Leguminosae, from vegetables such as sweet basil, spinach, water spinach, cassava leaves, pegagan, and papaya’s leaves. Second, to study the vegetables potent to be food supplement. The experiment has been conducted by extracting 0,1 g each leaves in 10 mL acetone 85%. The extract was fitered with Whatman paper No. 1, thus record the absorbance by using spektrofotometer UV Vis. Statistically analysis used to analyze chlorophyll content is Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) with Randomized Complete Design (RCD) in 95% significancy. If the ANOVA showed significantly different, the analysis were continued with Duncan’s test. The result showed that the highest content of chlorophyll-a, b, and total found in papaya’s leaves, however the lowest one was found in sweet basil. Papaya’s leave could be a food supplement.
