The samples were water of pickled raw vegetables, contained vinegar solution (Acetic acid, CH3COOH), and were randomly collected from vendors in 5 areas in Southern Tangerang, namely Ciputat, Pamulang, Pondok Aren, Pondok Benda, and Serpong. The pickling water was filtered and centrifuged, 2500 rpm for 5 minutes, to obtain sediments of the intestinal parasitic stages. The sediments were direct examined by lugol’s stain..The raw vegetable pickles consisted of cabbage, bean sprouts, and carrot. Of 30 samples, all samples were positive intestinal parasites (30/30, 100%). The prevalence rates of the intestinal parasites were 26.7% in Pondok Aren, 26.1% Pondok Benda, 16.8% Ciputat, 15.7% Serpong,, and 14.8% Pamulang.
