Abstract

During the coffee harvest season, coffee skins are generated as a byproduct of the coffee processing procedure. The quantity of coffee skin generated is substantial, typically 40% to 50%. Coffee skins are commonly subjected to a drying process and afterward provided to goats as a supplementary feed, typically without undergoing any specific treatment. The cellulose concentration of dried coffee skin is significantly elevated, which can lead to a decrease in its digestion. By employing technological advancements such as fermentation, it is possible to reduce the cellulose content or crude fiber present in coffee skins. This fiber reduction enhances the coffee skin's digestibility and shelf life. The utilization of fermented coffee skin as a concentrated feed source for goats has been observed. Based on scholarly sources, it has been suggested that goats require approximately 10% of their body weight in daily forage feed. Additionally, it is deemed essential to supplement their diet with concentrate feed, ideally amounting to 1% of their body weight, to offer additional nourishment. To sustain a population of 25-50 goats, each weighing an average of 25 kg, farmers are required to supply a daily feed quantity ranging from 75-125 kg. Therefore, group members must possess imperative for group members to possess an adequate provision of feed, including grass and concentrates, to consistently fulfill goats' dietary requirements the group to possess an adequate provision of feed, including both grass and concentrates, to fulfill the dietary requirements of goats consistently. One potential approach to addressing the challenges partners encounter is imparting knowledge, enhancing skills, and introducing suitable technology for by partners is imparting knowledge, enhancing skills, and introducing suitable technology to the strategic provision of goat animal feed. This can be achieved by fermenting coffee skins and producing silage, of fermenting coffee skins and producing silage, augmenting the feed's quantity and quality of the feed while extending its storage duration. The utilization of coffee skin waste, which is produced during coffee bean processing, as a viable feed option for goats is a promising solution. This approach eliminates the practice of stockpiling coffee skin waste beneath coffee trees, eliminates the practice of stockpiling coffee skin waste beneath coffee trees, and eliminates the practice of stockpiling coffee skin waste beneath coffee trees but also mitigates environmental pollution.

Abstract

The rising demand for Siam Kintamani oranges is driven by heightened public health awareness. Its bioactive components benefit human health, but their quality is swiftly deteriorating. Oranges must be preserved using the Nanocoating-konjac application procedure. Nanocoating-konjac is an immersion-applied natural preservative solution derived from konjac. Efforts to develop the autonomy and welfare of a community are made through village community empowerment. The Woman’s Farmer Group (KWT) Mekar-Sari (partners) is a group of women cultivators in the village of Pengejaran, Kintamani District, Bali Province, Indonesia, who require assistance to increase the shelf life of Siamese oranges. Using Nanocoating-konjac as a natural preservative for Siamese oranges can support community service objectives, such as enhancing (both soft and hard) skills and forming/developing economically and socially independent communities. By engaging in community service, partners gain the knowledge and abilities to manage natural resources and an entrepreneurial spirit, expanding their business and marketing opportunities. Community service activities are conducted through training using lecture methods, discussions, demonstrations, queries and answers, while an evaluation is carried out after handling the program. Seventy percent of the twenty group members who participated in community service had never preserved Siamese oranges, while thirty percent had done so. After participating in these activities, all members understand the materials and procedures, and they continue to apply nanocoating to citrus fruits based on what is marketed. Coating citrus fruits with nano-konjac adds value and becomes a community income source.

Abstract

This study aimed to develop a fast and low-cost detection method to determine the difference between hard shell capsule on supplement products containing pork or non-pork gelatin by using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and Partial Component Analysis (PCA). Twelve samples of hardshell capsules were used, among which Eight samples were pure made from pork and some of them adulterated with cow. The samples were detected before using real-time PCR to determine the identity of the samples. All the gelatin samples were measured with the FTIR spectrophotometer in the reflection mode. Spectra were collected in the wavenumber range from 4000-650 cm-1. The results show that the PCA model with the data were pre-processed before PCA was performed. The absorbance data from FTIR were pre-processed using Savitsky-Golay smoothing technique and continued with normalization by peak normalize before subjected to PCA. This newly developed method is fast, involves simple sample preparation and is low cost.

Abstract

Coffee skin is one of the wastes generated from coffee bean processing which is still potentially used as animal feed through the fermentation process, especially for goats as ruminants. Coffee skin fermentation using local micro-organisms (LMO) produces the best quality, and the provision of 10% substitution has a significant effect on the growth of pigs. The purpose of this study was to be able to determine the response to the appearance of prospective parent goats given fermented coffee husk waste as additional feed to their growth before the reproductive phase. The method used in achieving these objectives is the experimental design method using a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 4 treatments, namely: without additional coffee husk (Ko), giving coffee skin 5% (K1), 10% (K2), and 15% (K3) and each treatment was repeated 3 times. The basic feed given is in the form of forage mixed with grass and legumes, and coffee skin is given before being given forage. The results showed that giving fermented coffee skins additional feed had a significant effect (P<0.05) on body weight gain. The higher the level of fermented coffee peels the higher the average added weight until the level of 15% (K3) showed the best results with an additional body weight of 211g/day, but not significantly different (P> 0.05) with K1, and K2. From this study, it can be concluded that the provision of fermented coffee skin waste as additional feed has a significant effect on the additional body weight of goats up to a level of 15%.

Abstract

Belantih Village, located in the Kintamani District of the Bangli Regency, is recognized for its substantial citrus fruit potential. The majority of the local population in this region engage in citrus farming as their primary means of income. The lack of knowledge among citrus growers in Belantih Village about the processing of citrus fruits into long-lasting processed products is evident. The primary objective of the community service activities is to enhance knowledge and expertise in the processing of citrus fruits into value-added products, hence extending their shelf life and augmenting their economic worth. The implementation of counseling and mentorship programs, technological transfer initiatives, and training sessions focused on the processing of oranges into jam. The individuals included in this study were members of the women farmer group known as "Widya Pertiwi". The service activity consists of several steps, including the provision of materials and demonstrations on citrus processing, followed by a final evaluation in the form of a post-test administered through the distribution of questionnaires. The outcomes of counseling and training revealed that participants, utilizing the experiential learning approach and training, expressed their ability to comprehend and effectively execute the processing of citrus fruits into various culinary derivatives. This skill acquisition was particularly beneficial during periods of abundant fruit harvest, as it allowed for the generation of increased value and income. The findings of the study indicated a significant improvement in general knowledge. Specifically, 93.33% of participants reported a clear understanding, while the remaining 6.67% expressed comprehension regarding the processing of citrus fruits into value-added products following the completion of the service activities. Notably, no respondents reported a lack of understanding or confusion. The findings indicate that all participants belonging to the Women Farmers group have a keen interest in enhancing their competencies and implementing citrus fruit processing techniques to produce jam products. This approach aims to mitigate fruit rotting during periods of ample fruit availability.
