Tablets are medicinal ingredients in solid dosage forms which are usually prepared with suitable pharmaceutical ingredients. In this study, unsaturated fatty acids concentrate from Sardinella sp. oil was used as raw material and then it was microencapsulated. The microcapsule was formulated into a tablet with proportion of 250 mg concentrated unsaturated fatty acids for each 450 mg tablet. Tablet granules were analyzed for compressibility, flow rate, and fixed angle. While, the tablets were determined for weight uniformity, released time, hardness, and tablet size uniformity. The results showed that compressibility, flow rate and fixed angle of the tablet granules were 5.6%; 10.36 g/sec; and 32.4° respectively. Tablets had 447.85 mg weight uniformity; 48’12” released time; and 0.775 kg hardness. In addition, the tablet size uniformity with diameter 10 mm and thickness 4 mm was 2.5. Based on the pharmacopoeia, the tablets of unsaturated fatty acids concentrate from Sardinella sp. oil had met these requirements, but optimization was still needed for improving the released time and hardness of the tablet.
