Phylum Sipuncula is an unique marine creature, as its external morphology. This animal like a worm, and thus its name peanut worm. Papua people live in coast nearby ate this organism as food, but its nutrition status was not yet discussed. Research was done in March-Paril 2014, with the goal of determining chemical composition of S. nudus taken from Raja Ampat and Manokwari.
