The aim of this research was to study the capability of gliserol in improving the characteristics of edible film made from chitosan. Three various a concentration of gliserol was used, namely 1%, 3% and 5%. The results of edible film characterization from the three concentrations of glyserol showed that the concentration of 1% was the best concentration as a plasticizer, with thickness 0.15mm, water vapor transmission rate 47.25ml/m2/day, the tensile strength 24.35kgf/cm2 and percentage elongation 23.3%.
