Canna (Canna edulis Kerr) was a tuber that had a high carbohydrate content so canna had excellent prospects to develop into edible film. The purpose of this study was to make edible film of canna starch, knowing storability galamai was packed with edible film and determine the level of preference panelists through organoleptic tests. In this research, manufacture of edible films with various concentrations of canna starch 2%, 3%, 4% and the use of plasticizer (glycerol) 1%, 2% and 3% with 100 ml of water as a solven and then applied to galamai as a packaging. Of research on edible film get the best that was produced with the use of starch canna tuber 3% with the addition of 1% glycerol, wherein the edible film produced slightly thick and easily opened from the mold. Of organoleptic test showed that galamai packed with edible films of canna tuber starch 3% was the highest scores of the panelists with categories like. From the Friedman test showed that all three variations of the edible film packaging galamai, provide diversity to the test variable organoleptic (color, aroma, texture and flavor). Galamai was packed with edible film could be stored for 1 month.
