They are very popular for customers in Traditional Market of Yogyakarta. The acidic compound, like lime water, can reduce the concentration of formalin. Objective: This study aims to determine the effect of immersion of lime water on formalin concentration in salted anchovy fish. Methods: A total of 25 samples from five traditional markets of Yogyakarta city were tested using formalin kit test. Positive samples were treated with immersion of lime water with some concentration; 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100% (v/v). Determination of formalin concentration was done by acidimetric method using 0.955N hydrochloride and methyl red indicator. Results: Concentration of formalin before treatment is 1,397%. The content of Formalin after the immersion treatment of lime water with concentration 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100% (v/v) for 60 minutes was 1.094; 1,015; 0.712; 0.426 and 0.283% (w/w).
