The problem of stunting (short children) has one of the problems of malnutrition become the focus of the Government of Indonesia. Malnutrition is often caused by a child's reduced appetite. This is very important to pay attention to when making supplement products could increase appetite. These supplements must be safe and effective to use.

Lempuyang rhizomes (Zingiber zerumbet) contain alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, polyphenols and essential oils. This rhizome has many properties such as: tonic, anti-seizure and appetite enhancer. Supplements made from lempuyang extract are packaged in microcapsule form. Based on this, the researchers aimed to make lempuyang extract microcapsules.


The supplement has been in microcapsule form used by a spray drying technique. The obtained microcapsules were evaluated using a Scanning Electron microscope, particle size analyzer which obtained 10 - 500 mm microcapsules and HPLC to determine the percentage of lempuyang extract trapped in the microcapsules (% Entrapment efficiency) of 72%.
