benefits of sacha inchi oil along with the advantages of a
product of the highest quality and purity.
Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubillis L.), also known as Inca Peanut, Amui, or Sacha Peanut grows in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru. This plant belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family and is high in oil and protein. It is valued as a significant source of dietary protein by its native people.
Sacha Inchi seeds contain the highest percentage of unsaturated fatty acids and lower levels of saturated fat of all oleaginous seeds used worldwide for the production of oils for human consumption and as protein for the production of protein flours. Their high oil content (35–60%), with elevated levels of linolenic (ω-3) and linoleic (ω-6) acids provide a great potential for applications in the food and nutraceuticals industries. Sacha Inchi seed has been called a super food because of its high content of essential fatty acids and amino acids.
Sacha Inchi protein derived from the seed is a complete, highly digestible, and high quality non-animal protein with the amino acid requirement for adults. It’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans and can be used for protein concentrates in beverages, yogurt, supplements, vegetarian and vegan diets, vegan energizing smoothie, and among other applications.
Sacha Inchi Oil at 100% extra virgin seed oil offers an ideal balance between Omega 3, 6 and 9, essential fatty acids (EFAs) for a healthy cardiovascular, nervous, immune and metabolic system.
