Sacha Inchi from Peruvian Amazon
Sacha Inchi – One of the highest grades of protein ever discovered! Sacha Inchi is an incredible, natural, chemical-free source of protein, amino acids, nutrients and omegas. It is ideal for body-builders, athletes and vegetarians and is possibly the most potent non-animal food known to mankind. It’s a complete package single source of protein. Boosts energy and provides a high concentration of anti-oxidants.
Also known as Inca Peanuts or Inca Nuts, Sacha Inchi is recognized by many as one of the best new SUPERFOODS. One of the richest sources in the world of omega fatty acids, Inca Peanuts are also loaded with protein, fiber, and antioxidants.
Grown in the Amazon Rainforest and the high Andes Mountains of Peru, Sacha Inchi has been part of the Inca diet for 3000 years. The Sacha Inchi plant, Plukenetia volubilis, is a rainforest vine, with star-shaped seed pods, meaning that Inca Peanuts are technically seeds, not nuts. However, Sacha Inchi seeds do have a unique, mild, nutty taste that many compare to that of a dark roasted peanut with a slight woody flavour.

HOW TO USE SACHA INCHI
POWDER – Add 1-2 tablespoons to your daily superfood smoothie. Can also be used in desserts, cereals and a wide variety of superfood dishes.
OIL – Sacha Inchi Oil should always be used RAW and never heated. The Omega 3 bonds will break with heat and thus the oil is not meant for cooking or frying. Instead use it to boost the nutritional profile of your favorite salads, smoothies and cold dishes. Mix it with honey, different sorts of vinegar, mustards and various herbs and spices to create a Sacha Inchi vinaigrette to drizzle over your salad. Drizzle over tomatoes with salt and pepper. Drizzle on Asian pears with a pinch of salt. Top off gazpacho or any light, cold soup. Add a spoon or two to your favourite smoothies.
AN ANCIENT FOOD FOR THE MODERN DIET
The legendary Sacha Inchi is one of nature’s most nutritious foods. It powered the whole Incan nation for centuries. The Sacha Inchi plant still grows sustainably in one of nature’s wonderlands – the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest and its rediscovery by food scientists now provides income for indigenous Indian tribes. Sacha Inchi Powder is composed of the de-fatted seed, once it has been cold-pressed to produce Sacha Inchi Oil. The dried Sacha Inchi seed powder amazingly contains one of the most highly digestible, low-irritant, high quality proteins which sets it apart from just about any other protein source known to man. In addition, Sacha Inchi Powder retains a content of omega-3, 6, 9 in a ratio that helps support the body’s natural omega balance. Much has been written about inflammation associated with omega-3,6 dietary imbalance, which is a common fault with the Western diet which is overloaded with excess omega-6 and not enough omega-3. This imbalance is thought to lead to general inflammation, allergy, heart, joint and muscle disorders.
Sacha inchi seeds and Sacha inchi protein powder are considered a low allergenic all natural single ingredient food and provide a good substitute for people who develop sensitivity to whey protein and other highly processed protein powders. The cold-press process removes most of the oil but leaves 5-10% in the powder. The oil contains 50% Omega-3 and also has a high content of Tocopherols.

OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS
Sacha inchi is said to help promote weight loss. Some proponents also suggest that consuming sacha inchi can help reduce excess abdominal fat.
In addition, sacha inchi is purported to fight depression, reduce cholesterol levels, prevent heart disease, and aid in diabetes management.
1) Sacha Inchi for High Cholesterol
Preliminary research indicates that sacha inchi may be of some benefit to people with elevated cholesterol levels. For a pilot study published in the Peruvian journal Revista Peruana de Medicina Experimental y Salud Pública in 2011, researchers assigned 24 patients with high cholesterol to four months of treatment with varying doses of sacha inchi oil. The results revealed that sacha inchi oil appeared to have beneficial effects on cholesterol levels.
2) Sacha Inchi for Weight Loss
A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2002 found that sacha inchi is unusually high in tryptophan, an amino acid essential to the production of serotonin (a nervous-system chemical involved in regulating appetite). In theory, sacha inchi may help promote weight loss by increasing serotonin production and, as a result, keeping appetite in check and reducing food intake.
