Organic Sacha Inchi Oil 250ml
Sacha Inchi contains more Omega 3 fatty acids than any other plantbased oil known to man. This incredible oil is ideal for human consumption due to its high content of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Our Sacha Inchi is sustainably and organically shade-grown and harvested in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.
Sacha Inchi, sometimes called the Inca Peanut, is an awesome superfood from South America that is loaded with incredible levels of dha (omega-3’s) and protein. The nutritional profile of this mineral rich omega 3,6,9 packed superfood is remarkable. The cold pressed oil from this mineral rich seed is lighter, better tasting, and easier to digest than olive oil
Our Organic Raw Cold Pressed Sacha Inchi Oil is harvested from a shrub native to the Amazon Rainforest of South America that produces a seed which when dried or roasted tastes like a rich, robust, flavorful nut. For hundreds of years before the conquest of the Americas the Inca people utilized the sacha inchi seeds and oil for their mineral rich nutritional content. The massive amounts of omega 3,6,9 fatty acids present in this Inca staple food offer benefits to the bones, brain, skin, joints, and immune system. The cold pressed oil of these organic seeds (called sacha inchi nuts by some) has the highest omega 3 content of any seed or nut known to man. This seed is composed of more than 50% oil content meaning more EFA’s and omega 3’s by volume.
This incredible oil has the perfect balance of omega 3,6,9 fatty acids that are bio-available and easily digestible. These oils are crucial for proper brain function and healthy bones, skin, joints and immune system function. The massive levels of DHA present in this oil makes it highly beneficial to women, men, and children due to the difficulty most people have consuming sufficient amounts of these essential fatty acids (EFA’s). The body’s brain, heart, and nervous system all require omega 3,6,9 essential fatty acids to survive, and sacha inchi is the richest plant based source of these polyunsaturated fats in a well balanced easily digestible form
With 27% protein by volume, this powerful seed is becoming a favorite among vegans and vegetarians. Whether added to vegan raw food culinary creations or used instead of olive oil in fine cuisine this healthy oil has an amazing nutty, rich, crisp flavor that adds amazing accents to any artisan edible. The incredible levels of EFA’s, especially DHA (Omega 3) present in this cold pressed oil make it an excellent supplement – the oil of this seed is now sold in many health food stores in capsules to be taken like fish oil due to its remarkable levels of essential fatty acids.
