Abstract


This study aims to detect synthetic dyes in JAS (School Children Snacks) using a chelating
agent (CAT) from bagasse waste. Instrumentation used in the analysis was spectronic 20D.
Sugarcane pulp cellulose products as CAT adsorbent rhodamine B coloring agent, metanil
yellow and tartrazine in JAS were applied to 10 types of soft drink samples circulating in the
market in Gorontalo City. The method used is the adsorption method. The adsorption capacity
produced by cellulose with 75% content and α-cellulose content was 37.8% for sample 1 (56%)
sample 2 (12%), sample 3 (83%), sample 4 (54%), sample 5 (45%) , sample 6 (54%), sample 7
(51%), sample 8 (27%), sample 9 (69%) and sample 10 (25%). The adsorption capacity
produced by cellulose was 88.4% and α-cellulose content was 45.2% for sample 1 (56%)
sample 2 (12%), sample 3 (83%), sample 4 (54%), sample 5 (45%) , sample 6 (54%), sample 7
(51%), sample 8 (27%), sample 9 (69%) and sample 10 (25%).
