Pokak eggplant was quite popular abroad and in Indonesia spread over fertile land but still limited for public consumption. Pokak eggplant potential contains antioxidants and functions as a herbal medicine for health. The aim of this research was to analyze the phytochemical compounds in dried pokak eggplant using various drying methods into flour. There are 3 types of drying methods using sunlight, vacuum drayer, and Try dryer. The parameters observed were DPPH, total phenol, tannins, flavonoids, proximate test, vitamin C. The results showed the phytochemical components: a. Pokak flour (sunlight method) Contains DPPH 88.10%, total phenol 37.32 mg / g, tannins 1.03 mg / g, flavonoids 5.11 mg / g, water content 6.92%, ash content 3.66%, protein 11, 51%, 5.38% fat, 72.53% carbohydrates, 0.21% vitamin C, b. Pokak flour (vacuum dryer method) has DPPH of 92.81%, total phenol 77.35 mg / g, tannins 1.24 mg / g, flavonoids 2.75 mg / g, moisture content of 7.62%, ash content of 2, 82%, 22.66% protein, 3.25% fat, 65.51% carbohydrates, 2.44% vitamin C c. pokak flour (Try dryer method) had DPPH 85.15%, total phenol 22.91 mg / g, tannins 0.63 mg / g, flavonoids 2.43 mg / g, water content 6.89%, ash content 3, 29%, 21.28% protein, 7.04% fat, 61.5% carbohydrates, 0.39% vitamin C. So the best drying method for pokak flour processing is vacuum dry, which produces the highest phytochemical components.
