Abstract

Propolis has been known to have many benefits for human health, such as anti-cancer, anti-tumor, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory. Currently in Indonesia there are quite a lot of propolis-based products, such as soap, toothpaste, skin cream, or health products in liquid form. However, there is still no propolis product in powder form. In this research, microencapsulation of propolis using maltodextrin coating with freeze drying method will be done. Propolis powder has been tested for polyphenols and it was found that crude propolis (175 ml: 75 gr) had the highest polyphenols content in powder form, 434,438 μg /mL. Soft propolis (125 ml: 125 gr) has 4.533% of moisture content, which was the lowest result in these study. And also, the soft propolis (125 ml: 125 gr) has the highest solubility in water with 69% as the result. Propolis powder that has the highest solubility can be seen morphology using Scanning Electron Mocroscope (SEM). The result of the SEM test showed that the propolised powder form did not alter the morphology of maltodextrin. This indicates the success of microencapsulation, because the form of the coating agent maltodextrin was also not uniform.
