This innovation arose due to the high consumer demand for salted eggs, but on the other hand, the supply of the product is still available in the market in the form of original salted eggs. Therefore, in the community service carried out by the team of Food Quality and Health research group, Food Science and Technology Study Program, Faculty of Agriculture, Sebelas Maret University, the salted egg production process is shifted towards using the method of adding spices and roasting or smoking. These innovations aim to increase the shelf life of salted eggs and the functionality of the salted eggs produced.
