This research was aimed to know antimicrobial activity of edible film from jackfruit’s straws. Previously, edible films has been enriched by temulawak juice with various concentration (2%, 4%, 6%, and 8%). Antimicrobial activity toward microorganism on galamai (all of microorganism and osmophilic group) has been examined using agar diffusion methode. Zone of inhibition were measured after 24 h of incubation. Diameter of zone inhibition for all of microorganism were 9.00-26.50 mm and osmophilic microorganism were 8.50-12.70 mm.
