Abstract

The decline of environmental quality has an impact on the high accumulation of heavy metals in the organs of aquatic biota such as the golden snail (Pomacea canaliculata). Food processing before consumption is expected to reduce the levels of heavy metals in golden snail’s meat. This study aims to take a look at the effect of golden snail meat processing methods on reducing levels of heavy metals Pb and Cd. The research method is an experiment with processing, namely steaming, boiling, frying. The results of ANOVA show that there is an effect of processing methods on reducing levels of heavy metals. It is shown with the significance value (sig.) 0,000 < α = 0,05. The highest decline of heavy metasl content was in boiling process with a reducing percentage in Pb content of 44.39%, and Cd content of 43.30%.
