Abstract

Mandai is a fermented processed food that has unique fruit characteristics and distinctive taste, the flavonoid content in Mandai is useful as an antidiabetic substance.  Natural flavonoids play an important role in the prevention of diabetes and its complications. Anthropometry is a test method that uses body measurements as a measurement to determine nutritional status.  Various types of body size, body weight (BB), body length (PJ), body circumference (LB) and body temperature.  The purpose of this study is to determine changes in body mass index in male mice given Mandai vinegar and to determine the effect of giving Mandai vinegar to male mice that have been induced by diabetes using alloxan on their anthropometry.

            This research method was arranged using an experimental design Quasi Experimental model with 6 treatments, each treatment was repeated 5 times so that 30 samples were obtained at the end.  The data obtained were analyzed using analysis of variance.  Variance results that showed significantly different at 5% level were further analyzed with the Least Significant Difference test.

 Mandai vinegar diet on diabetes-induced mice has a significant effect on anthropometric parameters of body weight, head circumference and body mass index of mice and has insignificant effect on mouth length to anus, length of mouth to tail, body circumference, and temperature.
