Breadfruit peel derived from peeling waste from processed products made from breadfruit. Currently, breadfruit is only used for its flesh, while the peel of breadfruit is usually discarded or used as animal feed. Breadfruit peel flour has a fiber content of 2.65% and starch of 39.56%. The starch content in this breadfruit peel starch can be used as an ingre-dient for the manufacture of environmentally friendly biodegradable plastic, namely edible film. Edible film is a thin layer used as a food wrapper. This research purposes are to iden-tify the characteristics of edible film made from breadfruit regarding their texture and color. The physical characteristics produced are that the edible film has a texture that is flexible, slippery, and easy to tear, while the more composition of the material added, the brightness level of the edible film will increase.
Key words: Breadfruit / Edible film / Texture / Brightness
