This study aims to determine the nutritional value and organoleptic test of Torbangun leaf chips. The results of this study are expected to provide information and an overview of the benefits of local food as functional food to assist in increasing the scope of exclusive breastfeeding and improving the health status of the community, especially women. This type of research is an experimental study that is to know the nutritional content and acceptability of Torbangun leaf chips. This research was conducted in June 2019 until October 2019. The process of making chips is carried out in the Food Processing Laboratory Nutrition Study Program of the Health Ministry of Health Kupang Kupang. Organoleptic test was conducted at the Laboratory of Organoleptic Nutrition Study Program of the Poltekkes Health Ministry of Health Kupang. Analysis of the chemical properties of the product (proximate) was carried out at the Animal Husbandry Laboratory and Bio Science Laboratory of Nusa Cendana University, Kupang. From the results of the organoleptic test conducted by 35 panelists stated that the panelists liked the taste, texture, color and aroma of the fried and baked Torbangun chips. This is shown from the value of organoleptic test results ranging from 1 to 2, namely between likes and likes. However panelists are more likely to like fried chips than in the oven.
