Amorphophallus muelleri / Iles-iles Porang

Porang is a tuber plant with the Latin name Amorphophallus muelleri. In some areas in Java, this plant is known as iles-iles. Porang is usually used to be processed into flour which is used as industrial raw materials for cosmetics, thickeners, glue, ramen noodles, and food mixtures. Quoted from data released by the Ministry of Agriculture, if used as an agricultural cultivation plant, the advantage of porang is that it can adapt to various types of soil and altitudes between 0 to 700 meters above sea level. This plant is also relatively able to survive in dry soil. The tubers can also be obtained easily, while the plants only require minimal maintenance. Another plus, porang can be planted with intercropping because it can tolerate shade up to 60 percent. The seeds are usually used from pieces of stem tubers or tubers that already have a growing point or frog tubers (bubil) which are planted directly.

 



Porang plant can be used as an alternative flour because it contains a lot of glucomannan. Not only superior because of glucomannan, konyaku porang tubers are also low in calories, contain lots of fiber, and have seven kinds of essential amino acids. Dried konyaku porang flour can have a composition of 49-60 percent glucomannan fiber, 10-30 percent starch, and 2-5 percent insoluble fiber. Konyaku porang is also referred to as an alkaline food, which can neutralize acid levels in the body. In addition, konyaku porang does not contain carbohydrates and gluten, making it suitable for owners of gluten allergies, diabetics, and people who are on a low-calorie diet.
