Edible film from cassava starch was successfully synthesized. It was equipped with antimicrobials created from glycerol and lime extract. In this study, edible film will be utilized as food packaging. It was easily produced through simple methods. Cassava starch was mixed with glycerol and lime extract in various concentrations. The effect of dosage concentration of lime extract was studied. The thickness of film, moisture content, swelling degree, solubility, water vapor transmission and biodegradability were also studied. Edible film obtained at 0.25 mm of thickness, the swelling degree did not reach 2%. The biodegradability for seven days was only at 60%.
