Abstract
Introduction & Aim: The need of the domestic drug almost 90% comes from domestic products, but 96% raw materials are imported from China, India and Europe. One marine product which can potentially be used as raw material is astaxanthin contained in shrimp. The cheapest raw material to produce astaxanthin from shrimp wastes which can be obtained in large quantities in Indonesia. Waste of shrimp exported abroad back to Indonesia in the form of raw materials that have higher economic value. The aim of this study is to find an astaxanthin extraction method that is efficient and effective and can be applied in Indonesia. Method: A method of extraction of astaxanthin from shrimp wastes is high pressure extraction with ethanol solvent. Method of extraction is carried out with the variation of pressure (0.1-600 MPa) and variations of time 1-20 minutes as well as solvent ratio of 10-50 mL/g. Advantages this method are higher extraction yield, required shorter extraction times, and better antioxidant activity. Stages of purification is done by the use of short chain alcohols, solvents evaporate, then wash the precipitate with short chain alcohols, solvent hydrocarbons or a combination of both. Conclusion: The community is expected to use the astaxanthin products from the original raw material Indonesia as a supplement and antioxidant that are affordable and have the competitiveness. This will implies the improvement of autonomy in the provision of drug raw materials to face the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). Discussion: Astaxanthin is the most carotenoid in shrimp with a level between 39.5-92.2% of total carotenoids. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that can improves the function of vision, improves cardiovascular function, and can be used as cosmetics to slow down the aging process.
