This study was aimed at determining the effect of Coleus tuberosus containing resistant starch type 3 on the hypercholesterolemia suffering animals. The research method used was lipid profi le analysis on experimental animals suffering from hypercholesterolemia. The results showed that the consumption of Coleus tuberosus crackers containing resistant starch type 3 as a raw material for making crackers is able to decrease the lipid profi le (total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL) and increase the HDL level.
