Organic Sacha Inchi Seeds 8oz
Sacha Inchi is known as one of the “lost sacred crops” of the Inca. Our Sacha Inchi is shade-grown and harvested sustainably in the Peruvian Amazon. Sacha Inchi Seeds contain an ideal balance of Omega 3, 6, & 9 and are the best plant-based source of Omega 3 fatty acids known to man.
These seeds are unrivaled in nutritional content, containing more polyunsaturated fats in the form of Omega 3,6, and 9 than any other food known. This essential fatty acid (EFA) loaded superfood from the Amazon Rainforest of Peru offers massive amounts of healthy EFA in the most bio-available form possible and in perfect balance. These superfood seeds (sometimes called sacha inchi nuts) offer 48% of their polyunsaturated fats in the form of Omega 3 (DHA), 35% Omega 6, and 9% Omega 9.
Sacha Inchi seeds are high in protein and contain many essential amino acids.
This highly nutritious superfood was first cultivated by the Inca who appreciated the generous oil content of this seed and the therapeutic benefits that it offered them. For hundreds of years pre-Colombus the Inca cultivated and consumed this protein packed seed as a staple food.
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.
Our Organic Wholesale Sacha Inchi Seeds are cultivated on small farms in the Amazon region of Peru where pristine ancient jungle soil provides powerful nutritional content to our raw cold pressed oil.
