Title : Edible Peanut Worm (Sipunculus nudus) from Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia: Proximate analysis and Fatty Acid Profiles

Abstract :

Sipunculus nudus has become an important factor for society as a traditional medicine because of its nutritional content. The research objective is to determine the chemical composition, profile of fatty acids, and groups of chemical compounds in S. nudus. S. nudus samples were taken in Waworope Village, North Wawonii District, Konawe Kepulauan Regency, Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. The results of proximate analysis of S. nudus are ash level of 7.65%, water level of 8.34%, protein level of 54.22%, fat level of 10.31% and carbohydrate level by 19.47%. Content of Saturated Fatty Acids identified were caproic acid, capric acid, lauric acid, myristic acid, and palmitic acid, while Polysaturated Fatty Acid identified were linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid. The chemical group S. nudus ethanol extract identified were alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids and saponins
