Potensi ulvan dari Ulva lactuca sebagai sumber antioksidan Potential of ulvan from Ulva lactuca as an antioxidant source

Agoes Mardiono Jacoeb, Asadatun Abdullah, Siti Nur Hakimah


Ulva lactuca is a type of marine macroalga that produces a sulfated hydrocolloid known as ulvan, which has been identified as a potent antioxidant. This finding suggests that the U. lactuca cell wall has potential applications in the development of antioxidant-rich products. This study aimed to investigate the influence of heating time in an autoclave (15 and 20 min at 121 °C) on the yield, sugar and sulfate contents, and antioxidant activity of ulvan. The yield of ulvan, as well as the sugar and sulfate contents, were determined using graphimetric and spectrophotometric techniques, respectively, and the functional groups and antioxidants of the dried extract were analyzed using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and the 1,1-Diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method, respectively. The analysis was conducted on the oven-dried samples. Ulvan can be obtained by extracting it at a temperature of 121 °C for 15 min; ulvan extraction yielded a percentage of 1.98, with a total sugar content of 46.06±0.16% and a sulfate content of 21.53±1.16%. Infrared spectroscopy revealed the presence of wavenumbers 850 and 790 cm-1, which are indicative of the presence of ulvans. DPPH assay yielded an IC50 value of 469 ppm, which was categorized as a relatively weak antioxidant.
