Research on the use of sea cucumber (Holothuria scabra) is a functional drink has been carried out. The purpose of this study was to find out the proximate analysis of fresh sea cucumber meat, to determine the best formulation of sea cucumber functional drinks, find out the antioxidative activity and identification of saponin from functional drinks. The best formulation of sand cucumber (H. scabra)functional drinks based on organoleptic tests is MFT1 sea cucumber functional drinks(20% seacucumber, 20% lemongrass, 20% sugar, 20% rosella flower, 10% citrus, and10% ginger). The functional drink has positive saponins. The antioxidant activity contained in these functional drinks is very weak because the IC50 value is greater than 200 ppm which is 1838 ppm.
