Purple sweet potato is one among many types of potatoes that maintain a lot of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, calcium, phosphorus and anthocyanin that are useful in our body. The use of sodium nitrite as a food preservative affects the ability of erythrocytes for carrying oxygen, that cause anemia. This study has been carried out by measurement of blood components (hematology), especially for the number of leukocytes, erythrocytes, hemoglobin, hematocrit of mice that were previously induced by Sodium nitrite roomat causing of blood components of mice become abnormal and then were induced by pollen purple sweet potato (Ipomea batatas var. Ayamurasaki) with variations of volume of 0.4 ml and 0.2 ml for normalizing of blood components of mice. The obtaining data showed pollen purple sweet potato can normalize blood components of mice, but for given volume variation did not show any different effect.
