Assessment of Kanium Seasoning Tea Product by Using Organoleptic Method


Introduction: The high prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypercholesterolemia increases complications of diseases such as heart disease, stroke, erectile dysfunction, kidney failure, and nerve system damage.  People often combine non-pharmacological therapies with pharmacological therapies, such as consuming processed traditional plants. Coriander and cinnamon are traditional plants that have long been consumed by Indonesians as a health drink that has many benefits for the body. Objective: The objective was to learn the panelists' assessment of Kanium Seasoning Tea products that can help lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Results: The research method was the Descriptive Analytic and Organoleptic Test, which is a way of knowing the response of panelists to Kanium Seasoning Tea products with four parameters, namely color, scent, taste, and texture, through hedonic tests, which is a test carried out on 28 panelists to determine the level of consumer acceptance of the product, with a scoring score of 1–5. Based on the taste of Kanium Seasoning Tea, 28 panelists (100%) said Very Like; based on color, 27 panelists (96.4%) said Very Like and 1 panelist (3.6%) said Like; based on scent, 24 panelists (85.7%) said Very Like and 4 panelists (14.3 %) said Like, and lastly, based on the texture of Kanium Seasoning Tea, 24 panelists (85.7%) said Very Like and 4 (14.3%) panelists said Somewhat Like. Conclusion: The result of the research is expected to be used as a complementary therapy which accompanies pharmacological therapy in patients with diabetes.
