The aim of this study was to make pineapple sticks with the addition of pineapple in the form of pineapple jam. The variations in the concentration of pineapple jam added were 0%, 20%, 40% and 60%. Then the content of water, fiber, carbohydrates, fat and protein of pineapple sticks were analyzed. The two-way ANNOVA test was used to analyzed statistically. The basic ingredients of the sticks were made from a mixture of wheat flour, onions, garlic, salt and eggs. The results showed that the optimum of pineapple sticks had water content 1.99%, fiber content 0.99%, carbohydrate content 57.47%, fat content 19.81%, and protein content 8.98%.
