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. This Incan superfood has been used for centuries by the indigenous peoples of South America. It is valued as a significant source of dietary protein by its native people. In today’s modern diets, Sacha Inchi is being incorporated for its potent nutritional benefits, especially in the vegan and vegetarian lifestyles.
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 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 nutraceutical industries. Sacha Inchi seed has been called a super food because of its high content of essential fatty acids and amino acids.
Sacha Inchi derived from the seed is naturally high in protein and a complete, highly digestible, high quality, and non-animal protein with the amino acid requirement for adults. Sacha Inchi has a light, nutty flavor to it, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans that can use it for protein concentrates in beverages, yogurt, supplements, vegetarian and vegan diets, vegan energizing smoothie, and among other applications.
