This research aims are know and determine the best concentration of sorbitol as a plasticizer that produces the best edible film characteristics. This research was conducted at Laboratorium Pengolahan Hasil Perikanan, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Science Universitas Padjadjaran. Research began in July to August 2019. The method used was a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 3 treatments and 3 repeat, namely treatments A (0.4%), B (1.2%), and C (2%). The parameters measured are thickness, tensile strength, percent elongation, transparency, moisture content, and solubility. The results showed that the addition of sorbitol had a significant influence on the characteristics of edible films. The best concentration is the addition of sorbitol 1.2% with 0.079 mm thickness value, 6.09 MPa tensile strength, 111.67% elongation, 4.37% and 95.63% transparency and clear degrees, 9.20% water content, and 35.56% solubility. Edible films in this research have met The Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS).
